"Sendyk is the last member of a Jewish family of twelve from Chrzanow, Poland, only three of whom survived the Holocaust. This is her moving story of how each of the others died and of what happened to her and her one sister who survived a German labor camp. . . . Vastly worthwhile and affecting."—Kirkus Reviews
"Sendyk writes like a seasoned novelist: characters are firmly drawn, events trenchantly described, drama and tension accented. . . . The author shows how important are friendship and humanity, especially in abnormal conditions. Humanity becomes a bulwark against German brutality. . . . Read The End of Days and see how endemic, irrational hatred and a nihilistic system uprooted and destroyed innocent lives, and how decency was able to transcend evil."—USA Today
