9781925240450: Between Sky & Sea (Text Classics)

-Beautifully written with extraordinary insight into the frailties of humanity.---
Australian

Originally written in Yiddish and first published in English in 1946, this was one of the earliest works of fiction to address the consequences of Hitler's Final Solution. Herz Bergner's novel follows a group of Jewish refugees fleeing Europe aboard a dilapidated freighter. As the ship creeps toward disaster, tensions surface on board. The author creates unflinching psychological portraits of the reactions of the passengers to the profound uncertainty of their fate. An arresting novel of compassion and understanding, that resonates tragically with the recent Syrian refugee crisis.
