Product Details


“Not only an important novel, but an important historical document. This new, unabridged translation is a genuine publishing event.” — Joseph Kanon, author of The Good German and Leaving Berlin

“As a demonstration of what life under Nazism does to the mind and soul of many typical Germans, The Seventh Cross is a searching, brilliantly skillful job.” —Orville Prescott, The New York Times

“Seghers taught my generation and anyone who had an ear to listen after that not-to-be-forgotten war to distinguish right from wrong. The Seventh Cross shaped me; it sharpened my vision.” —Günter Grass

“A masterpiece. Written in the midst of terror, but with such clarity, such acuity; Seghers is a writer of rare insight.” —Rachel Seiffert, author of A Boy in Winter  

“A fascinating insight into life in pre-war Nazi Germany just as the horrors of the Nazi regime were beginning to unfold. This is an important novel, as much for its picture of German society as for its insight into the psyche of ordinary people confronting their personal fears and mixed loyalties while an escapee from an early concentration camp attempts to avoid recapture.” —Simon Mawer, author of The Glass Room
