See Under Love, Paperback / softback Book


Momik, the only child of two survivors, is brought up in Israel by a family seeking to ignore the past.

No-one will explain to him what life was like 'Over There' or what the 'Nazi Beast' is.

His 9-year-old mind imagines a Nazi Beast hiding in the cellar, waiting to feed on Jews.

Momik increasingly shields himself from all feeling and attachment.

But through the stories his great-uncle tells him-the same stories he told the commandant of a Nazi concentration camp-Momik, too, becomes "infected with humanity." See Under: Love is a luminously imaginative and profoundly affecting work.
