Tzili Kraus is a dull-witted
child born last to a poor but
upwardly striving family
somewhere in pre-war
middle-Europe. Whil^ her
bright siblings study madly,
she grows up “neglected
among the abandoned ob
jects in the yard.” Yet, when
the destruction comes, it is
Tzili alone who survives,
hiding in a shed.
Tzili wanders in the
woods. In a stroke of instinc
tive genius she tells the
goyim that she is the
daughter of “Maria,” an in
famous prostitute. Repeated
ly fleeing harsh treatment,
she encounters Mark, an
older Jewish survivor hiding
in a mountain top forest. He
builds a bunker, im
pregnates her, and disap
pears. Tzili goes on suffering
and surviving.
At war’s end, T^ili finds
herself among a group of
Jewish camp survivors —
people, as the author hastens
to show us, whose moral
compass has been severely
shaken. Tzili’s baby is
stillborn. As this stark
novella ends, Tzili is aboard
a boat bound for Palestine.
She has been taken under the
wing of a “fat woman,”
formerly a cabaret singer,
who hugs a brandy bottle
and sings lullabies not in
Hebrew but in Hungarian.
This simple story fairly
quakes with malevolent
vibrations. As in Badenheim
1939, the book that introduc
ed his work to Americans,
Appelfeld scorns those
myopic Jews who will not see
the signs of approaching
holocaust. Even Mark, who
gets Tzili pregnant, ends up
besotted by vodka, just like

the goyim. the only one who
is worthy is Tzili herself,
who could not connect with
the Jewish world that was
destroyed.
Strong stuff — and very
disturbing.
A Book of Songs is set in a
nameless concentration
camp that might as well be
Auschwitz. Many of the in
mates had been musicians.
Now they work as an “or
chestra” amid a great din, in
a shop filled with rows of
machines that convert scrap
metal to shrapnel.
Among the inmates is a
mute artist who sketches on
a frosted night window, an
acid-tongued “poet” who
was in fact only a clerk in
normal life, a violinist who*
mimes playing the instru
ment he once had, and a
saintly philosopher who af
firms the value of life even in
the camp before killing
himself. Then there is the
narrator, who does not say
much about his former life.
So long as they can work,
these men have the chance to
live one more day.
The only symbol of beauty
here is a small, gnome-like
boy who packs a violin
beneath his filthy jacket. In
return for bread he makes
music of unearthly beauty
rise from beneath his bow. It
touches even the camp
guards, who allow the boy to
roam freely.
Given the blackness of the
death camp milieu, it is
astonishing that the author
does not allow his characters
to become the walking dead.
They still think, feel, and
talk with fervent intensity.
The only major question
about this fine book, in fact,
is whether so much in the
human equation could sur
vive in a realm where
humanity is ruthlessly strip
ped away.
Though both of these
strong novels have at their
center a Jewish child
wandering alone in
Holocaust times, it is strik
ing how different they are in
outlook. Appelfeld has
nothing good to say about
.middle-class European
Jewry on the eve of its
destruction. Linn brings the
enslaved remnant of these
same people lovingly to life.
Perhaps Appelfeld, the
European-born Israeli, has
seen too much while Linn,
the Oregon opthalmologist,
has seen not enough,
