ISBN-13: 9788880574330

"A quei tempi, non esisteva alcun canone della scrittura sulla Shoah, e neanche l. a. parola. Non si sa come raccontare l'inenarrabile. Marek Edelman è uno dei primi a tentare. Il risultato: questo testo è oggi più attuale che mai. Lo è perché non è un racconto epico delle gesta belliche, ma una storia su come un gruppo di ragazzi e ragazze abbia tentato di riscattare l. a. dignità e salvare l. a. vita di un'intera città che si voleva condannata a morte e all'ignominia."
