    1. Estremecedora, cada relato te deja más encogido el corazón. Narra tanto antes de la ocupación nazi como después.La última para mi, ha sido la más fuerte y le he puesto un 4 porque me hubiese gustado que algunos relatos fuesen mas largos.



    2. la maggior parte di questi racconti sulla shoà riguardano la vita prima o dopo la deportazione. a volte sono descrizioni di situazioni solo abbozzate , non ben definite, ma che fanno emergere tutto l'amaro dell'incognito, del terrore incombente su ogni singola situazione di vita quotidiana. ho letto altri libri sull'argomento, ma ogni volta avverto un senso d'incredulità di fronte a quanto accaduto.
