KIRKUS REVIEW

This promise was the extermination of the Jews. Here is the story of that accomplishment in Poland, not Warsaw this time, but Lwow. It is also the story of Adolf Folkmann, one of the few to escape -- his immunity at first working as a salvage collector of Germans -- his contact with a Ukranian which saved him once more -- and finally, as liquidation became wholesal, his escape through the Underground to Norway as a Polish Aryan slave laborer -- and from Norway to Sweden. A personal, practical sauve qui peut attitude colors this account of terrorization and escape. It is not a popular subject -- but it is dramatic reading.
