More > joodse violist, die van het ene onderduikadres naar het andere trok - schetst treffende de teloorgang van een cultuur.

De auteur blijkt uit een rijke bron van herinneringen te kunnen putten om aan de hand van details het steeds beangstigender joodse leven in Amsterdam-Oost te schetsen... Ferares' onbevangen stijl en medogenloze observaties maken het boek tot een tot een buitengewoon boeiend oorlogsdocument. (NRC-Handelsblad, 1991) Het boek is een ontroerend debuut vol ingehouden verdriet. (Vrij Nederland, 1991)< Less
