'A powerful account of a historian's quest to give names to these Jewish victims murdered in 1941 ... This book is an act of restitution' -- David Aaronovitch, Book of the Week, The Times
'[Lower] hopes to recreate the details of that day in Miropol and thus reveal the networks of complicity that made the Holocaust possible. Here, she succeeds with a vengeance' * New York Times *
'A riveting and extraordinary expression of historical excavation and literary non-fiction - detective work of the highest and most gripping order' -- Philippe Sands, author of East West Street
'Lower certainly leaves no stone unturned as she recounts her mission in this fascinating book' * Jewish News *
'Extraordinary and spell-binding ... A brilliant piece of dogged detective work but, more importantly, a deeply moving reconstruction of events that day' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'Lower meticulously probes the background of the photo, which was dated October 13, 1941 and labeled 'Miropol'' * Times of Israel *
'An important and moving contribution to Holocaust literature. The Ravine demonstrates how meticulous research, seventy years after the murder took place, can lift the veil of anonymity from both victims and perpetators' -- Jan T. Gross, author of Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland
'Seventy years after the crime, Lower, a historian dedicated to unveiling truths, solves what would otherwise have remained a 'cold case'. Her story is breathtaking' -- Father Patrick Desbois, author of The Holocaust by Bullets
