Badenheim 1939 owes everything to its author's astonishing capacity to recreate the energies and confusions of innocent and uncomprehending victims who, always loyal to civility and social graces, fail to even dimly see the cruel terms of their imminent fate.

As real as Kafka's unnamed Prague ... imbued with a Watteau-like melancholy. -- Gabriel Annan "New York Review of Books"About the Author:
Aharon Appelfeld was born in Czernovitz, Bukovina, in 1932. When the Nazis swept east, his mother was killed, and he was transported to the labor camp at Transnistria, from which he soon escaped. For the next three years, he wandered in the forests. Sometime in 1944, he was picked up by the Red Army, served in field kitchens in Ukraine, and thence made his way to Italy. He reached Palestine in 1946. A veteran of the Israeli Army, now married and the father of three children, he teaches at Ben Gurion University.
