A uniquely personal Polish account of the Holocaust. At once a meditation, journal, and a novel, this work includes a reconstruction of the minutest details of genocide and a fictional account of a group of Jewish and Christian friends meeting shortly before the war for a summer of frivolity.

Unfortunately, Rymkiewicz mixes vivid history with pallid fiction (scenes in an imaginary Jewish boardinghouse are exercises in borrowed pathos, derivative of Singer, Appelfeld and Kis).
