Language Notes:

Text: English (translation)
Original Language: Czech

From Library Journal:

The seven new stories by a master chronicler of the Holocaust ( Indecent Dreams, LJ 6/15/88) examine the minds of both the Nazis and their victims. In "Infinity," three young men at Auschwitz lie awake anticipating the rebellious nightly singing of women waiting for the gas chambers. Another story depicts a growing awareness by the camp Commandant's retarded son of what is going on and his identification with the Jewish children gassed in a van disguised as an ambulance. In another story, set in Prague on the eve of the Nazi's defeat, thoughts of a simple Czech woman concerned about the survival of her grandson are effectively juxtaposed with those of an aristocratic captain of the Wehrmacht , who for the sake of German glory brings a cruel death to both. Gripping tales of diverse encounters with Nazism, beautifully crafted and movingly told.
