About this title:

Synopsis:

In the winter of 1991, at a concert in Krakow, an older woman with a marvelously pitched violin meets a fellow musician who is instantly captivated by her instrument. When he asks her how she obtained it, she reveals the remarkable story behind its origin....

Imprisoned at Auschwitz, the notorious concentration camp, Daniel feels his humanity slipping away. Treasured memories of the young woman he loved and the prayers that once lingered on his lips become hazier with each passing day. Then a visit from a mysterious stranger changes everything, as Daniel’s former identity as a crafter of fine violins is revealed to all. The camp’s two most dangerous men use this information to make a cruel wager: If Daniel can build a successful violin within a certain number of days, the Kommandant wins a case of the finest burgundy. If not, the camp doctor, a torturer, gets hold of Daniel. And so, battling exhaustion, Daniel tries to recapture his lost art, knowing all too well the likely cost of failure.

Written with lyrical simplicity and haunting beauty—and interspersed with chilling, actual Nazi documentation—The Violin of Auschwitz is more than just a novel: It is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of beauty, art, and hope to triumph over the darkest adversity.

About the Author: Maria Angels Anglada (1930-1999) is one of the most important figures of the Catalan 20th century. Her success as an author was concretized in 1978 when she was awarded the Josep Pla prize for her first novel Les Closes. She subsequently became one of the most prestigious and widely-read of all Catalan authors with works such as: No em dic Laura, L'agent del Rei and El violi d'Auschwitz. Martha Tennent is known for her skillful translations of Catalan works into the English language. One of her most recent translations is Merce Rodoreda's novel, Death in Spring.
