Written by a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, The Shop on Main Street is the story that inspired the highly successful Academy Award-winning Czechoslovak film of the same title. Looking at the Holocaust through the eyes of a complicit individual, the narrative follows a good-natured carpenter living in a Slovak town in 1942 who unwittingly becomes a participant in a moral crisis involving the abuse and persecution of Jews. Describing the film adaptation of Ladislav Grosman's novel, the New York Times declared that it is a "human drama that is a moving manifest of the dark dilemma that confronted all people who were caught as witnesses to Hitler's terrible crime." The review continues: "'Is one his brother's keeper?' is the thundering question the situation asks, and then, 'Are not all men brothers?' The answer given is a grim acknowledgement. But the unfolding of the drama is simple, done in casual, homely, humorous terms--until the terrible, heartbreaking resolution of the issue at the end."
