Note: 
Originally written in Yiddish in 1940 and now translated by Jeffrey Shandler, the story of Emil and Karl is set in Vienna on the brink of World War II. Since the Nazi take-over of Austria, ordinary citizens are encouraged to prey upon their Jewish neighbors, humiliating and torturing them. Emil and Karl, friends of about nine years old, have both lost their parents in the political upheaval, and are trying to survive on their own. Through their frightening experiences, readers are taken on a journey into the maelstrom that was to become the Holocaust.
