Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A frightening yet fascinating account of a German-Jewish youth, BenGershom (``David''), who successfully evaded the death camps of the Third Reich. Resourceful and in many respects unique, David escaped the ``Final Solution'' by first becoming part of a prototype kibbutz which the Nazi's had hollowly promised resettlement in Palestine; and then by going underground in an odyssey that took him through Eastern Europe to eventual safety in Turkey. Throughout his narrative David raises some poignant questions concerning the nature of the Holocaust and, miraculously, even manages to preserve his sense of humor amid a horror which cost him his family. A film based on the book won first prize at the 1979 Berlin Film Festival. Recommended for Judaic or Eastern European collections. Joseph W. Constance Jr., Boston Coll. Libs.
