Nechama Tec is at University of Connecticut, Stamford.

Review:


"A compelling account. Quite accessible."--Michele Bisbey, St. Vincent College


"A beautifully written and poignant account of what it was like for a young girl to be passing as a Gentile in Nazi-occupied Poland."--Evan Hunter


"Dry Tears moves me beyond words....[It] conveys an immediate sense of what [living under the Holocaust] was like, and does so strongly, even nobly, without a trace of self-pity....My admiration has no bounds."--Robert K. Merton, Columbia University


"Render[s] with such honest yet compassionate detail the struggle of Jews to 'pass' as Christians among anti-Semitic people who sheltered them, loved them, lived off them, and finally, after the war, were ashamed rather than proud of having taken [them] in."--Geoffrey Hartman, Yale University


"A story of human resilience...made all the more remarkable because it is seen through the eyes of a young girl who bore herself beyond the promise of her years."--Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, President, Union of American Hebrew Congregations
