  • When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father's War and What Remains, by Ariana Neumann. Simon & Schuster. $32.99.
  • The Happiest Man on Earth, by Eddie Jaku. Pan Macmillan, $32.99.

These two books deal with the experiences of Jewish men during the Second World War; one Czechoslovakian and one German. Both were highly skilled in different technical areas, something that helped both of them survive the slaughter of millions of Jews.
