Germans laid siege to Leningrad in 1942,
Kozhina, then a child of nine, fled with her

f THE FINAL JOURNEY
Translated by Patricia Crampton
“Do we need another book about the
Holocaust? Yes, if it is as good as this one.
This is not a book for children, but teens and
adults will find it compelling reading, an
extension of the autobiographical journeys of
Primo Levi's Survival in Auschwitz (1959) and
Isabella Leitner's The Big Lie (1992).
Crampton's translation is restrained; the dialogue rings true; the details are authentic.
There is no exploitation; in fact, there is
almost no direct violence. The end is quiet
and devastating.”—Booklist. 160 pp.
