MEDIA REVIEWS
A single book can earn a writer a permanent place in literature, but to do that it has to be exceptional . . .I do not think that, after reading the book, anyone will dispute that Dagboek geschreven in Vught fulfills that condition.
-- Ivan Sitniakowsky, Telegraaf, writing about the Dutch edition

"This powerful diary deserves to take its place among the small number of such journals, notably that of Anne Frank, that elucidate the evil of the Nazi war against the Jews."--Jewish Book World
"Dutch Jew David Koker's extraordinary diary, a clear-eyed and sensitive account of life inside a concentration camp, is finally available in English" --Tablet
