N.Y. 10010 The Holocaust in Fiction Tzili: The Story of a Life. By Aharon Appelfeld; translated by Dalya Bilu. E.P. Dutton, Inc., 2 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016.1982.141 pages. $12.95. A Book of Songs. By Merritt Linn. St. Martin’s Press, 175 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10010.1982. 309 pages. $13.95. Reviewed by Peter Heilman 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 CLEANING Oil /o OFF t • SCAMSTIESS ON DUTY • • DMNIiMUM OlOtt $4 00 AFTEI DISCOUNT SHARON SHOf PING CENTER 97IOMONROC RO AT SARDIS RO.

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, e Peter Heilman is the author of Avenue of the Righteous and The Auschwitz Album.
