“[When Memory Comes] is a small classic of Holocaust literature.” —The Guardian (US)
“A beautifully written (and beautifully translated) memoir of a tragic childhood.” —The New Yorker

“When Memory Comes
retains the very texture of recollection in a literary style characterized by tact and elegance.” —Wall Street Journal

When Memory Comes is a quiet and deeply affecting masterpiece.” —The Nation
