• “The definitive history of this definitive place. If this book feels more fantastical than my novel, or than any novel you’ve ever read, it is because of Trochenbrod’s ingenuity, the Holocaust’s ferocity, and Bendavid-Val’s heroic research and pitch-perfect storytelling.” —Jonathan Safran Foer, from the Preface “Unique and compelling. It is more than a story about Trochenbrod; it is a story of rediscovery and redemption.” —Father Patrick Desbois, author of Holocaust by Bullets “A journey through the history of this vibrant town. A heartfelt account that resurrects a lost memory of the era.” —Kirkus Reviews
