The Ghetto With Eight Doors

Alejandro Parisi

NOVEL. SUDAMERICANA, 2009. 320 PAGES.

Mira Ostromoglinska was born to a Polish Jewish family in 1922. Bound by a pact of silence, she kept quiet about her story for more than fifty years. Until one day she finally decided to share for the first time, and with disturbing clarity, how they escaped from the horror of the ghetto and did what they had to do to avoid giving in to the Nazi extermination. Alejandro Parisi interviewed her over the course of a year. El ghetto de las ocho puertas (The Eight Doors of the Ghetto) is the result of this marvelous labor. The author skillfully captures the voice of the protagonist, relates her story precisely and intelligently, and masterfully reconstructs those years in Europe. El ghetto de las ocho puertas is both a novel and the story of a full life, of a moving experience.
