9780099466659: Refusal

A moving and often heartbreaking glimpse into how the suffering of those imprisoned in the Nazi death camps didn't end with their liberation

 

This moving and profoundly truthful story is told in the form of diary, kept by Angélika, the sister-in-law and friend of Klara, who wandered through war-ravaged Europe for two months after her release from Auschwitz before returning to Paris in August 1945. Gradually, with cold anger and pitiless lucidity, Klara reveals the full horror of what she experienced in Auschwitz as she struggles to readapt to normal life. With truth, dignity, power, and intelligence, this captivating novel captures the inhumanity of the death camps and the scars suffered by those who survived them.

Review:

"A gift from heaven, a marvel of good writing, an unashamed and inventive approximation to the unbearable weight of memory. I have been waiting for some time for an account like Refusal. I did not expect this quality and had not dared hope for it... Soon only fiction - that is the paradox, the mystery of literature - will be able to not merely bring to life, but also enrich this memory" -- Jorge Semprun Nouvel Observateur "The most remarkable, awake-all-night-to-finish read" -- Antonia Fraser Sunday Telegraph, Books of the Year
