H. G. Adler: A Life in Many Worlds

Peter Filkins ’80. Oxford University Press, March 2019. Available on Amazon. The biography of H.G. Adler (1910-88) is the story of a survivor of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, and two other concentration camps who not only lived through the greatest cataclysm of the 20th century, but someone who also devoted his literary and scholarly career to telling the story of those who perished in over two dozen books of fiction, poetry, history, sociology, and religion. And yet for much of his life he remained almost entirely unknown. His is the story of many others, but also one that is singularly his own.
