Product Details


“An utterly moving story, reminding us how in the end all we have are the names of those who came before us and the memories attached to those names. Rippling across generations, Keep Saying Their Names is as haunting for its characters as it will be for its readers.” —Oscar Cásares, author of Where We Come From

Keep Saying Their Names is a deep, yet gentle, exploration of how we become who we are, and how our individual decisions can impact the lives of others. Through the vivid scenes he creates, Stranger allows us to get closer to understanding how war creeps into every fabric of our lives, how it can possess places, buildings, objects, people. Ultimately, Stranger’s masterful book is a pledge for taking individual responsibility: by remembering those who are no longer here, by keeping their stories alive, and by recognizing that we are made of our past. Reading this book is a deeply emotional experience, especially during a time of reemerging anti-Semitism. Its humaneness leaves you hopeful.” —Nora Krug, author of Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home 

Keep Saying Their Names is a cut diamond of a book.  Both brutal and tender, it drills toward its dark truths with hypnotic force while glimmering with the bright hope that we all might be redeemed.” —Joshua Furst, author of Revolutionaries

“Haunting . . . Stranger succeeds in shining a light of hope by keeping the memory of the dead alive. This tale of triumph and compassion is a testament to courage in the face of the darkest evil.” —Publishers Weekly
