Daniel Paisner has collaborated on many books, including the New York Times bestselling Last Man Down: A Firefighter's Story of Survival and Escape from the World Trade Center.

Reviews

"Despite the substantial number of Holocaust memoirs that have been published, The Girl in the Green Sweater manages to touch us in an unexpected way, revealing highs and lows in man's capacity for evil, as well his capacity to love life and other human beings. Through the eyes of the child that Krystyna Chiger was in Lvov, Poland in 1939 we see the whole moral universe." --Naomi Ragen, author of The Saturday Wife and The Covenant

"[A] gripping memoir. . . Captures both tragic events and beautiful images that continue to haunt the author after more than 60 years." --Kirkus

"Told from a precocious child's point of view. . . Chiger's seven-year-old cypher possesses a self-awareness that springs from her inner and outer turmoil, capturing well the despair and terror of a life in hiding. With a powerful story and a keen voice, Chiger's Holocaust survivor's tale is a worthy and memorable addition to the canon." --Publishers Weekly

"An important addition to Holocaust literature that vividly describes a harrowing childhood faced with enormous strength and courage." --Michael Bart, author of Until Our Last Breath: A Holocaust Story of Love and Partisan Resistance
