Sobibor, Paperback / softback Book

Sobibor Paperback / softback


Sobibor traces the life of Berek (later Bernard) Schlesinger from his Polish shtetl childhood to his life during the Holocaust hiding in the woods, finding refuge with non-Jews, confinement in Sobibor, escape during the uprising, working with partisans' documents.

A physician after the war, he follows a relentless, unfulfilled pursuit of retribution for Nazi war criminals through the courts.

The Sobibor uprising and its leaders, Alexander Pechersky, are pivotal to the novel.

The author, Michael Lev, a product of Soviet Jewish culture, avoids loud rhetoric and heroic pathos, keeping the narration within the limits of realism.

A flowing, masterful read.
