The First Review Is In

Share

Amy Scheibe reviewed From Day to Day: One Man’s Diary of Survival in Nazi Concentration Camps  for Jewish Quarterly, Spring 2016.

“More than anything, though, it is his moral outrage at anyone who dares to turn an eye away from the suffering of others—especially when that eye is his own—that makes this a timely reissue. By the end of the war, Nansen is poignantly aware of his entitled situation. The humanism he carries into the last camps finds expression mostly in words, as deeds would have ended in a most unfortunate way for both the man and this priceless chronicle.

From Day to Day breaks once again the heart of humanity—a “never forget” document that echoes with the ghostly voices of the murdered.”
