Summary
My brother's tears left a delicate, clean line on his face. I stroked his cheek, whispered, it's really you ... Dov and Yitzhak live in a small village in the mountains of Czechoslovakia, isolated both from the world and from the horrors of the war. But one day in 1944, everything changes. The Nazis storm the homes of the Jewish villagers and inform them they have one hour. One hour before the train will take them to Auschwitz. Six decades later, from the safety of their living rooms at home in Israel, the brothers finally break their silence to a friend who will never let their stories be forgotten. Malka Adler's extraordinary biographical novel of a family separated by the Holocaust and their harrowing journey back to each other is based on interviews with the brothers she grew up with by the Sea of Galilee. When they decided to tell their story, she was the only one they would talk to. Told in a poetic style reminiscent of Margaret Atwood, this is a visceral yet essential read for those who have found strength, solace and above all, hope, in books like The Choice, The Librarian of Auschwitz and The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Praise for The Brothers of Auschwitz 'I sat down and read this within a few hours, my wife is now reading it and it is bringing tears to her eyes' Amazon reviewer 'The story is so incredible and the author writes so beautifully that it is impossible to stay indifferent. I gave the book to my mom and she called me after she finished crying and telling me how much she loved it' Amazon reviewer 'It is a book we all must read, read in order to know ... It is harsh, enthralling, earth-shattering, rattling - but we must. And nothing less' Aliza Ziegler, Editor-in-Chief at Proza Books, Yedioth Ahronoth Publishing House 'Great courage is needed to write as Adler does - without softening, without beautifying, without leaving any room to imagination' Yehudith Rotem, Haaretz newspaper 'This is a book we are not allowed not to read' Leah Roditi, At Magazine
