    One thought on “The Journey”

    1. Prose is lyrical, story is powerful, at times it is profound. However, there is a disconnection between the reader and characters. Still, a must read for those interested in Holocaust literature.

    2. This is a rare gem of a book, not for the faint hearted or casual reader. Sebald aficionados will see where W.G. got his flair for the art of insinuation and the use of parable, as well as his inclination for crystal clear prose.H.G.Adler, a survivor of two concentration camps, has managed to fictionalize the experience of persecution and displacement, making it resonate for all historical periods, times, circumstances, people. This is a deeply humane expression of literature, a significant and [...]

    3. Blurb: A major literary event: the first-ever English translation of a lost masterpiece of Holocaust literature by acclaimed author and survivor H. G. AdlerThe story behind the story of The Journey is remarkable in itself: Award-winning translator Peter Filkins discovered an obscure German novel in a Harvard Square bookstore and, reading it, realized that it was a treasure unavailable to English speakers. It was the most powerful book by the late H. G. Adler, a survivor of Theresienstadt and Aus [...]

    4. I really do appreciate Adler's poetic, deep, profound novel about the Holocaust.But to be quite frank (maybe I'm Candor, haha), I just couldn't understand it. It was too hard for me to read for school, and when I was asked to write a little report on it, I wrote a more general idea because the book was just too difficult to interpret in detail.No spoilers, but I read the entire book and he made no mention of the Nazis, Jews, or the actual word "Holocaust". I'm sorta the type of person who you ha [...]

    5. The New Yorker , January 31, 2011, published an excellent article,The Long View , by Ruth Franklin, which discussed this author, HG Adler. He was a survivor of several concentration camps, but managed to view his experiences in manner which allowed him to "produce a quantity and diversity of writings about the Holocaust that seem to have been equalled by no other survivor". This novel is only one of many. If others read nothing by him, those who are interested in this genre should seek out this [...]

    6. It takes a while to understand this poetic and surrealist style of writing. At times it's even lyrical. The horror emerges and then dissipates. The terror of the main characters is revealed as partially numbed as the days pass. There are impressions rather than specific explanations. I actually preferred this book to Night. I was partially dissociated from the characters though, perhaps because it was too real for me to create protection from the story. This was terribly unsettling to read but n [...]

    7. A very powerful Holocaust novel, one that rivals Night. Alder, a Holocaust survivor, wrote a book of the Holocaust without using the words Nazi, Jew, concentration camp, or any associated. An amazing, horrifying book of life and memory.

    8. Life and Death as LimboWritten in 1950, published in Germany in 1962 (overcoming orchestrated opposition from the German publishing establishment), but appearing in English only in 2008, The Journey occupies an important and unique place in Holocaust literature. According to the translator, Peter Filkins, it is one of only four books of fiction written in German by Jewish survivors of the camps. And among the hundreds of Holocaust novels published since, it must be the only one with its particul [...]

    9. In English, this book, translated from German, is called 'The Journey.' If you want to know how the Jewish people felt about their journey to the concentration camps, beginning with how hard it was to leave their homes and possessions, this is the book for you. It's fiction, but is based on the author's experience. He was taken to Auschwitz where his wife and her mother was put to death. He wrote this in 1950, but it didn't get published in Germany until 1962. There is an article about H. G. Ald [...]

    10. Een heel bjzonder boek over de holocaust, waarin echter nergens woorden als nazi, Duitsers, Joden, kamp etc. genoemd worden. De schrijver (die zelf als Tsechische jood vanuit Praag in drie kampen heeft gezeten en het als een van de weinigen van zjn familie heeft overleefd)schrijft een bijna abstract verhaal over de gebeurtenissen. Daardoor maakt het naar mijn idee meer indruk dan al de getuigenissen met bijna grafische bechrijvingen van wat er in die kampen is gebeurd.Vooral het stuk over hoe he [...]

    11. Strange and dreamlike at times. Hard to fathom that one could write a book about WWII concentration camps and never use the words German, Jew, Nazi, concentration camp, Hitler
