Product Details


“Read this  little book  and it will haunt you for ever. It vibrates with the  sheer horror of inhumanity and the beautiful power of music.  Remember, never forget.”– Tatiana de Rosnay, author of Sarah’s Key

The Violin of Auschwitz is a very moving story that is as concerned with the transcendent power of art as it is with the dehumanizing trauma of the Holocaust. Anglada writes with elegance and subtlety, the brevity of the story only adding to its emotional power.” – John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

“Anglada provides just enough details of life in Auschwitz to create a thrumming sense of horror, but also manages to balance these extremely effectively with careful and beautifully rendered descriptions of Daniel’s work, which, in turn, reflect the possibility of hope and beauty within so much darkness. The novel…is as well-crafted as Daniel’s violin turns out to be, and lingers in the imagination long after the last page is turned.” Shelf Awareness
