Cut off from all news of the war along with thousands of fellow prisoners, Jacob Heym accidentally overhears a radio broadcast that reveals the Red Army's advancement and is forced to tell a series of lies in order to explain his knowledge.

I had to read this book for my World Literature Class in College and it was phenomenal! Who knew it would take one person who survived the ghettos of Poland to take this weighty subject matter and turn it into a work of art. Before you read this, please research his life and his reasons and history behind the book itself; it will clear up any questions you have. This book does keep the reality and tension of the subject matter to a T. My review is to not to tell you the story it's for you to understand that this book is essential in the history (Literary history and personal response to) of the Holocaust and the ghettos of Poland
