Bread for the Departed details the experience of the Jewish community in Warsaw between 1940 and 1942; the final chapters take place during the mass deportation of Warsaw's Jewish community to death camps. Episodic, chaotic as the teeming ghetto itself, the novel records the inexorable breakdown of morals and loyalties that accompanied the physical deterioration of the ghetto population.

I had read this after reading John Hersey's "The Wall."

"The Wall" tells the story of the Warsaw ghetto from an adult point of view; "Bread for the Departed" tells the story from a child's point of view.

One needs to read this book twice, I think, to get the full flavor of it. Plus, the end of the book helps you understand the beginning better (at least it did with me).

What would've helped greatly would've been a translation of the German phrases used by the soldiers. I was a bit lost at times.

Otherwise, this is a very good book, a book that stays with you, a book that haunts you.

Well worth the time and money.

This book is labelled fiction, but it is actually autobiographical, and stands up to any non-fiction written about the Warsaw ghetto during 1940-1942. It takes a strong stomach to read this book, because the author has a real eye for the most graphic detail and spares the reader nothing. At the end, you wonder how so many people survived as long as they did under such conditions. The story is told from the point of view of a child (which the author was at the time. It's not a pretty book, but it gives the most realistic picture I've seen yet of what ghetto life really must have been like.

Imagine you're a child sat at a table with your family; father, mother, uncles, aunts, grandparents, on one of the great festivals celebrated by your people. You are waiting, listening for that one reference to the destruction of the great enemy so that you can whoop with joy. But the conversation turns to matters of concern that you can't quite grasp. Arguments begin about whether resettlement might mean something else. When I first read the opening chapter to "Bread for the Departed" I was mesmerised; it was as though I was really there, part of the gathering. "Bread for the Departed" is the tale of the Warsaw Ghetto as seen through the eyes of one small boy. You share the memories as you sink into the almost evryday "normality" that the nightmare has become. It is a novel that will never leave you.

Not well-written. I barely finished it.

I've just finished reading Bread for the Departed, having recently re-visited Auschwitz and Birkenau. It has to be one of the most powerful books I have read for many years. The power resides not just in the story itself, but in the telling of it - no sentiment, not a single false note, just an overwhelming sense of loss. It should be better known than it is, a wonderful, appalling, uplifting, dispiriting, tragic, book.
