Reviews

"Tells the story in a new way, with riveting immediacy. . . The Diary of Anne Frank was a poignant solo piece for cello. Words to Outlive Us is a work of full orchestral anguish." --Time "One can hardly imagine anything more authentic than these testimonials.. . .One has at times an almost theatrical sense of the many narrators stepping out individually from the darkness, each telling a piece of his or her story and then stepping back again." --Los Angeles Times "One comes away from the book stunned by the remarkable energy and willingness to resist that so many demonstrated but haunted by the recognition of how little that resistance availed." --The New Yorker "A devastating portrait. . . If one can read only one book on the Warsaw Ghetto, this is it." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) Tells the story in a new way, with riveting immediacy. . .
