Description  more details

"In this powerful and affecting novel, Ida Fink writes about a journey ttat takes us close to the heart of darkness but which is all the more poignant for the nuances of shadow, and sometimes even of light. Through the story of two sisters who take on several false identities to disguise their Jewishness and survive, frank exposes, with acute delicacy of detail, the perversion of human relations, the brutalities and occasional acts of mercy, the cruel prejudices and the necessary lies that took place in the somber context of the Holocaust".
Farrar Straus Giroux New York 1992, 250 pages (hard cover)
