Stalemate: A Novel, Icchokas Meras

Stalemate: A Novel, Icchokas MerasA classic of Holocaust literature from one of the great masters of the short novel.#151;IThe New YorkerBRBRIn the Vilna Ghetto during World War II, Nazi Commandant Schoger demands that all children be sent to the death camp. When Abraham Lipman pleads with him to spare their lives, Schoger reconsiders, and tells Lipman there will be a chess match between himself and Lipmans only surviving son, Isaac, a chess prodigy. If Isaac wins, the children will live, but Isaac will die. If Isaac loses, the children will die, but Isaac will live. Only a draw will save the ghetto from this terrible predicament.BRBRThe chess game begins: a nightmarish contest played over the course of several evenings, witnessed by an audience impotent to act, staking the lives of their children on a stalemate. This is a moving story of a father and a son who shame their cruel perpetrator with their dignity, spirit, and extraordinary courage. IStalemate speaks to the power of humor even under the direst circumstances. As a parable that gives voice to the unspeakable, IStalemate is an antidote to despair. Обо всём этом и не только в книге Stalemate: A Novel (Icchokas Meras)
