內容簡介


根據真人真事所撰寫的小說,訴說猶太大屠殺時期,一個生活在奧施維茨集中營的小女孩,死守書籍的故事。

「令人難忘且心碎的小說。」- 《出版人周刊》星級評論

「如同朱薩克的《偷書賊》,這是一本深刻且複雜的小說,包含各種關於成長的主題,帶來一種灼熱情緒的閱讀經驗,足以與其他來自猶太大屠殺時期強有力的證詞並駕齊驅的小說。」《書單》星級評論

世界上最小也最危險的圖書館故事。

這個圖書館一點也不大,事實上,它的館藏只有8本書,而且有好幾本書況不佳,但至少它們還是書。在這個幽黯之地,當書中字句所吐出的聲音大過機關槍的時候,它們所帶來的時光就比較不那麼悲傷。

14歲的Dita是眾多被關在奧施維茲集中營的俘虜之一,她與父母被納粹從布拉格的特雷津猶太區帶到了這個地方。當猶太領導Freddy要她負責同胞們好不容易偷渡進來的8本書時,Dita答應了,她成了奧施維茲的秘密圖書館員,除了負責保護這小小的書本珍藏,她還要負責看護學富滿車、同樣可以借閱,以便教導集中營兒童的”活人書”。

但是,書籍實在太危險了,因為它們使人思考,也沒有比奧施維茲31區更危險的地方,這個關著猶太兒童的區域,凡有小小的違反事件,都要面臨行刑,不館違反的年齡有多小…。

For readers of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The Choice: this is the story of the smallest library in the world – and the most dangerous.

'It wasn’t an extensive library. In fact, it consisted of eight books and some of them were in poor condition. But they were books. In this incredibly dark place, they were a reminder of less sombre times, when words rang out more loudly than machine guns…’

Fourteen-year-old Dita is one of the many imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. Taken, along with her mother and father, from the Terezín ghetto in Prague, Dita is adjusting to the constant terror that is life in the camp. When Jewish leader Freddy Hirsch asks Dita to take charge of the eight precious books the prisoners have managed to smuggle past the guards, she agrees. And so Dita becomes the secret librarian of Auschwitz, responsible for the safekeeping of the small collection of titles, as well as the ‘living books’ - prisoners of Auschwitz who know certain books so well, they too can be ‘borrowed’ to educate the children in the camp.

But books are extremely dangerous. They make people think. And nowhere are they more dangerous than in Block 31 of Auschwitz, the children’s block, where the slightest transgression can result in execution, no matter how young the transgressor…
