Both survivors of the Holocaust and those who were t there agree that it is impossible to tell what happened during the Final Solution. Language cant express the horrors of such places as Auschwitz. No piece of writing can adequately imagine the concentration camps, ghettos and death camps. And that is precisely why writers must tell - and retell - what happened there. In When Night Fell: Short Stories of the Holocaust , Linda S. Raphael and Marc Lee Raphael have collected 27 short stories that interpret the Holocaust. Some of the writers included here, such as Aharon Appelfeld, S.Y. Agn and Yehuda Amichai, are internationally acclaimed authors. Other writers may be new to many readers, although their pieces are equally moving. This international selection includes stories by writers who experienced the Holocaust personally; other authors wrote about it long after the fact. Some pieces look at individual experience; others take a broader view. In addition to the stories selected, When Night Fell contains a useful introduction by the editors, putting the stories in context. Also included are a glossary of unfamiliar terms, a chrology of important events and a suggested reading list.
