Revue de presse
The excellent translation carries the reader along effortlessly. This is another book about the Holocaust for young people that deserves its place alongside such international writers as Gudrun Pausewang and Uri Orlev. --Outside In
'How was it possible for Stig Dalager to write about the last years of the story of David in such a shocking and convincing way that one should think that this was written by Isaac B. Singer or one of the other Polish-Jewish geniuses? ' ----Jewish Information Magazine
'Dalager has written a shockingly relevant historical novel, a taut story of international standing and appeal. A monument to our own shame, at that time and now'. ----Politiken Newspaper
