Reviews: DAY AFTER NIGHT by Anita Diamant

A couple of our participants read Day After Night by Anita Diamant for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s a little of what they had to say; click the links to read the full reviews.

Lorri from Jew Wishes says:

Within the core of each individual is a desire for a new beginning, a yearning to be able to begin life anew in Israel. Their hopes, dreams and longings are what keep them going, through their humdrum existence in the camp. Life deals them hard knocks that they have to manage with.  Diamant has demonstrated their fears, longings, and dreams with a masterful hand. She vividly portrays their adjustments within their imprisonment. Their imprisonment is often self-inflicted, within the camp setting, as they try to adjust to their new surroundings. She brings us a story line that is unique, seen through the eyes of the four women, who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances, circumstances in Israel before its Statehood. Politics is a strong undercurrent, running parallel to the stories of the women.

Diane from Bibliophile By the Sea says:

Their shared horrors surrounding the Holocaust, bond them and make them friends. Each in her own way helps the others to focus on their next challenge: starting to live again in a new country. Not a pleasant subject, Day After Night is a haunting story of suffering, tragedy, hope, and redemption.
