    A wonderful chronicle of a Jewish family in Belarus beginning in the early 20 th century and culminating in its destruction in Hitlers holocaust A cast of remarkable characters illuminates this novel The fiery Rachel and her soft spoken husband Yacov Ivanovsky,Rachels father the respected and tough Abraham Rakhlenko,the colourful Khaim Yagudin and The Ivanovsky children includin the narrator,Boris and the beautiful Dina We grow to know and love the characters And it with a profound sense of horror and tragedy that we see their cruel destruction at the hands of the NazisIt is however through the few survivors such as Boris Ivanovsky and his sister Lyuda and the young Olya that we find hope.

    Breathtaking This family saga is so beautiful and so loving, and yet so sad It reads like the clear water of a gently flowing stream and is truly magnificent.For a elaborate review in Dutch, see

    Reading this novel was partly like eating spinach knowing it was good for me, but not particularly enjoying it , partly absorbing, and partly the last part that is absolutely, completely horrifying Horrifying to the extent that I found myself skipping some sentences and paragraphs not because I wasn t engaged but because of the horror of the descriptions of what Nazis did to Jews, and particularly to those Jews who dared to rebel It s true that I read many books on Holocaust, but not all of them featured such honest, and detailed, descriptions of the medieval in their cruelty tortures that Nazis employed I think the horror was also amplified by the very effective structure of the book The first, and longest, part reads somewhat biblical, somewhat Marquez ish, somewhat Gogol ish even in its gentle little town humour And then the Horror descends on the last 90 pages Sheer horror If the novel wasn t somewhat overwritten in the initial two thirds hence the spinach metaphor , I d have given this book 5 stars.

    It s difficult to understand now why this book was SO popular and resonant if you do not know the historical background I personally found the story not very interesting for myself, especially its first pre war half, which left me quite indifferent and made me think about wasted time The second half of the book, about the Holocaust and life and death of the ghetto, is moving and painful, of course.Anyway, this fictional story although based on some true events looks pale comparing to many real accounts of Holocaust survivors and witnesses So I feel that the story of the book publication is much interesting and important than the book itself.The thing is that, after World War Two, hidden state sponsored and state incited anti Semitism in the USSR was not only diminishing but even growing The Holocaust was not mentioned, not discussed, not recognized, and anything related to it was thoroughly eliminated from people s memory and historical documents, swept under the rug If you think of it, the Soviets guarded the Holocaust problem as though it was them who organized it, not the German Nazis It was not allowed in the USSR to tell that Nazis killed Jews just because they were Jews even in the places of their specific elimination Babyi Yar, etc , the memorials always said something about Soviet citizens and innocent victims overall Never Jews Just never.Consequently, Soviet people never talked about ghettos, and The Final Solution, and anything related to targeted extermination of Jews by Nazis, even those Soviet people who personally witnessed or even participated in all this It was a large clumsy elephant in the Soviet room There were hundreds of Soviet books and movies about innocent victims in general and the heroic fight against German Nazis, but none of them mentioned Jews as the main victim of the war and the tragedy of this nation that became one of the paramount landmarks of our new history.Therefore, s book that talked directly about Jews, and a ghetto, and the targeted extermination of Jews in the middle of other Soviet people who were allowed to continue their lives as usual under the occupation, WAS THE FIRST SOVIET NOVEL DEDICATED TO THE HOLOCAUST Ever Please note the year of its publication 1978 Fucking shit, it was one year before I was born, and conquerors of fascism were allowed to read something about the Holocaust for the first time Moreover, the publication itself was a difficult matter You should read the memoirs of to understand how all the efforts were made to prevent this publication or at least censor the story so it would resemble those generic stories about nameless innocent victims rather than Jews They demanded even to change the name of the novel into generic, because the original name was too Jewish They censored the novel violently They simply refused its publication several times.The novel was eventually published but only because of the huge popularity and high rank of , who was a recognized Soviet classic then, approved and awarded by the state 1951 , who had a lot of previously published popular books and movies created on the basis of the books, etc I also suspect that publication was allowed only because the author chose to tell not about Jews who just suffered and were killed by thousands although this was the most common thing during the war but about a quite rare thing Jews that tried to actively fight against Nazis, who made an attempt to organize a rebellion, who collaborated with Soviet guerilla fighters, etc., i.e not just passive victims but people who felt anger and fought for their freedom.Some quotes from s memoirs about the creation and publication of the novel , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 20 1977 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 37 38 .9.3.78 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 1995 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 2 1981 26 , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

    I couldn t find an English edition of this book on GR, so to synopsize the book Heavy Sand is about Jewish rural life in the Ukraine from the beginning of the 20th century until the events of WWII The narrator, Boris or Borya Ivanovsky, tells the story of his parents his Swiss born, half Jewish half German father his Jewish Ukrainian mother how they fell in love, the challenges they faced being from different cultures and social classes, the family they built together in a close knit, rural town Then he tells of the war, of the Jewish ghettoes, of the systematic extermination of a people and their strength through it all The story is obviously a tragedy.First, the things I enjoyed I liked the authenticity of the story I didn t feel the need to try and catch this author s mistakes because his story isn t research, it s fiction based on actual fact Rybakov picked a topic he knows and wrote a fictional story about it The very best and most believable stories are created in this way and this book didn t feel contrived at all I found the Russian perspective on communism to be very interesting When you read books created for American audiences there is a definite pattern to the description of life in a communist country There is an emphasis on how poor that life is compared to the ever wealthy capitalism or democracy, as the authors like to portray it of the great and powerful United States of Amuhricah This book portrays the USSR as a great and powerful country in itself, where people are happy, where they work and succeed and live their lives with as much fervor and happiness as anywhere else in the world IMO, this is an authentic portrayal The drawbacks of communism are portrayed as well, such as waiting 3 years for an apartment or having a family of eleventy billion people living in a small house, but what I found most important was that the people weren t beaten down by their way of life They were educated, happy, in love with each other and with life How much of this was Soviet censorship and how much Rybakov s honest opinion, I don t know.The reason this book gets 3 stars from me is because a lot of it was told in a very tedious and difficult to read way It was downright boring I don t really like the fact that Rybakov chose to tell this story through an actual narrator who s a character in the story, rather than through an all knowing, fly on the wall narrator It made the story drag, with little dialogue and lots of lengthy descriptions of things that didn t progress the story I also didn t like the lack of Jewiness in a story about Jews Again, not sure if this is Soviet censorship at work, but these people the Ivanovskys could have been anyone Russians, Ukrainians whoever There were few Yiddish words, little Jewish behavior, and I had a hard time believing that the family was Jewish at all And I don t mean religiously Jewish They were just missing that cultural Jewish aspect for which they ended up giving their lives to the Nazis and for which they were persecuted for generations in the Soviet Union I don t know how Rybakov could have achieved this, but this is why I m not an author and he is.Overall, I d recommend this book to those who are particularly interested in this specific time period and region I think this is an authentic portrayal of life in the Soviet Union, of what people not just Jews, but everyone suffered during the war and although it s slow, the story is sincere and the characters likable.

    This book does not mostly focus on Jews in WW2 as I thought it would Rather it focuses on family life from 1910 to about the end of WW2 Roughly half of the book is the time before WW2 and the other half is the start of the war through its end This could easily fall into the category of fictional autobiography Boris, the narrator, talks about his family starting from his grandparents and ending at his nephew and niece Overall this is a very good read and I would definitely read it again
