"Roskies's work, densely argued, richly allusive, exemplary in its far-ranging scholarship, is itself a deeply felt response to the Holocaust and its memories; an affirmation of continuities as well as violent endings."—Times Literary Supplement
"Eloquent and moving . . . Against the Apocalypse documents a virtually unknown chapter in the history of the refusal of Jews throughout the ages to surrender."—New York Times Book Review
