So runs the Song of the Partisan This enthralling novel pays tribute to the Jews who fought back during the holo. This was an amazing piece of war time adventure Adventure during war times you ask Yes that is exactly how this is written and what makes it on a optimistic note A piece of brilliant writing by Primo Levi and probably one of the best optimistic war novels ever written Superbly translated by William Weaver who has translated several books from Italian written by Umberto Eco Primo Levi and Italo Calvino Not that I have read the original in Italian but the English translation itself is able to convey a lot of its essence and the reader never feels that it has been translatedThe book is a fictionalized reconstruction based upon sources of research and discussions by the author after WWII The story is about groups of Russian Jewish and Polish partisans who combine and then keep re combining now and then while moving westwards from Western Soviet Russia into Poland to Germany and into Italy along with their partisan activity between July 1943 and August 1945 Most of them being Jewish their final destination is Palestine It chronicles the adventures crises and moral struggles of the group fiction yet grounded in factOne of the best parts of the book is that the style seems very informal especially regarding the dialogues This actually helps the reader in being in the situation back then With the way in which it is written the reader is also held up psychologically and emotionally in the zone along with the partisans all the whileThe book starts with two protagonists which is what I had felt but following which later in the story a few characters are included and I for one felt everyone to be protagonists by the end of the book in their own ways Such balance is maintained and every character s importance is displayed I liked this part tooThe unpredictable nature of their journey at a time when the characters never knew whether the war is ending or not or how long it has to go on whilst at the same time focus is on the activities of characters and their lives how they try to spend good times their dialogues on philosophy poetry and music and the stuff of love in their lives etc makes it a very dynamic reading The author spends least amount of time on the disgust and gore of the war and the holocaust although keeping it within the framework of the story in the background This is especially well done And I felt this is one of those super ways in which someone can make a war time novel so un war like and interesting at the same time The title of the book is taken from the sayings of Rabbi Hillel which are found in the Pirke Avoth The Maxims of the Fathers a collection of sayings of famous rabbis edited in the second century AD and which are a part of the Talmud The words are taken from chapter one verse thirteen If I am not for myself who will be for me And even if I think of myself what am I And if not now whenThe book is a highly recommended read and I could advise on going slow while living in those moments

    What I learned from this book the meaning of Israel For the Russians a longing for home was not an unreasonable hope even probable a yearning to go back a call For the Jews the regret for their houses was not a hope but a despair buried till then under urgent and serious sorrows but latent always Their homes no longer existed they had been swept away burned by the war or by slaughter bloodied by suads of hunters of men; tomb houses of whic
