In the winter of 1991, at a concert in Krakow, an older woman with a marvelously pitched violin meets a fellow musician who is instantly captivated by her instrument. When he asks her how she obtained it, she reveals the remarkable story behind its origin...Imprisoned at Auschwitz, the notorious concentration camp, Daniel feels his humanity slipping away. Treasured memories of the young woman he loved and the prayers that once lingered on his lips become hazier with each passing day. Then a visit from a mysterious stranger changes everything, as Daniel's former identity as a crafter of fine violins is revealed to all. The camp's two most dangerous men use this information to make a cruel wager: If Daniel can build a successful violin within a certain number of days, the Kommandant wins a case of the finest burgundy. If not, the camp doctor, a torturer, gets hold of Daniel. And so, battling exhaustion, Daniel tries to recapture his lost art, knowing all too well the likely cost of failure. Written with lyrical simplicity and haunting beauty - and interspersed with chilling, actual Nazi documentation. "The Auschwitz Violin" is more than just a novel: it is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of beauty, art, and hope to triumph over the darkest adversity.

Review:

A very moving story that is as concerned with the transcendent power of art as it is with the dehumanizing trauma of the Holocaust. Anglada writes with elegance and subtlety, the brevity of the story only adding to its emotional power. (John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)

A masterwork of delicacy. (Elle)

A distressing and thrilling fight to survive thanks to art, music, and the ability of hands and heart. (El Giorno)

A simple and moving book, written with crystalline simplicity, intense passion, and lively, stirring humanity. (La Republica)

Book Description:

An international sensation The Auschwitz Violin is the unforgettable story of one man's refusal to surrender his dignity in the face of history's greatest atrocity.
