Editorial Reviews

Sunday Star Ledger
Compelling. . . . This absorbing diary provides even more evidence of Nazi crimes against humanity.
Beacon
Readers . . . will emerge with respect for [Lambert’s] courage in wrestling with the idolatry of loyalty.
Midwest Book Review
One of the most important records of the experience of the Jews of France during the Holocaust.
H-France Review
A welcome addition to the literature of Holocaust testimony.
— Donna F. Ryan
H-France - Donna F. Ryan
A welcome addition to the literature of Holocaust testimony.
Journal Of The Royal Musical Association
A frank portrait of a rather unfortunate good Jew caught in the deadly net of the Nazi extermination machine.
Jerusalem Post
A frank portrait of a rather unfortunate good Jew caught in the deadly net of the Nazi extermination machine.
Tidings
Lambert's struggle to reconcile his Jewish and French identities deserves to be included in the reservoir of suffering that was Nazi Europe. . . . His decisions have been, and will be, judged by history, but readers of this book will emerge with respect for his courage in wrestling with the idolatry of loyalty as the reality of the Vichy regime undermines the 'humane culture' of France.
National Catholic Reporter
[Diary of a Witness] is an essential document for students of Vichy France.
H-Net Reviews
Lambert's account is riveting.
—Sam Goodfellow
Holocaust and Genocide Studies
This personal record of the prominent leader of the Union of French Jews in the Free Zone of the Vichy government is an invaluable contribution to the study of the particular situation of French Jewry during World War II.
—Rachel Feldhay Brenner
The Jerusalem Post
The diary offers us a very interesting description of Lambert's service in the defeated French army in World War II, the creation of Vichy and the unprecedented rise of French anti-Semitism."
—Alexander Zvielli
