Becky’s Book Reviews said:

There is an immediacy and urgency to Emil and Karl. Written in 1938–in Yiddish–it was only recently (2006) translated and published in English. Set in Austria, Vienna to be exact. The Third Reich is in power, yet the horror of World War II has not yet dawned. The full wrath unleashed during the Holocaust–the organized full-scale murdering of the Jewish people*–has yet to begin. Though the hate is strong and ever-present. Meet Emil and Karl. Best friends. One is Jewish. The other is not.
