Aron, the narrator, is an engaging if peculiar and unhappy young boy whose family is driven by the German onslaught from the Polish countryside into Warsaw and slowly battered by deprivation, disease, and persecution. He and a handful of boys and girls risk their lives by scuttling around the ghetto to smuggle and trade contraband through the quarantine walls in hopes of keeping their fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters alive, hunted all the while by blackmailers and by Jewish, Polish, and German police, not to mention the Gestapo.

When his family is finally stripped away from him, Aron is rescued by Janusz Korczak, a doctor renowned throughout prewar Europe as an advocate of childrens rights who, once the Nazis swept in, was put in charge of the Warsaw orphanage. Treblinka awaits them all, but does Aron manage to escapeas his mentor suspected he couldto spread word about the atrocities? 
Jim Shepard has masterfully made this childs-eye view of the darkest history mesmerizing, sometimes comic despite all odds, truly heartbreaking, and even inspiring. Anyone who hears Arons voice will remember it forever.… (mere)

I usually avoid novels set in the Holocaust because however good and well written they may be, they just destroy me. It's hard to spend intimate time with such evil... "evil", which seems too mundane a word here, really. This book is no different. Doctor Korczak certainly deserves to be immortalized in fiction, however. The book somewhat reminds me of Louis Malle's film "Au Revoir Les Enfants", in being a simply but not simple told unsentimental story about children and then - boom - the Holocaust just kicks you in the gut.

So... thanks, Tournament of Books, for leading me to read this. I guess. ( )

The stories of the holocaust have been recounted in at least a few different ways. I've found those with the most objective narrators, e.g. Primo Levi's If This is a Man, to be the most moving and most literarily satisfying. As humans, it's only necessary to be shown hell, we all have enough experience with nightmares to make any author's pathos superfluous. That is why horror stories are so universally appreciated. Mr. Shepard tells us an historical story that we already know in detail. He tells the story through the eyes of a boy who says, "Whether I was happy or unhappy, I took things as I found them.", and who is the target of psychological projection by everyone around him. His constantly complaining mother and his callous smuggler friends all, in a philosophically absurd fashion, accuse him of being self-centered. The overall effect is that we seem to have been given an honest vision of these events, and the result is devastating. ( )

This book tells the story of a boy growing up in the Warsaw ghetto during WWII. It is told in a simple and straightforward manner, the way in which a youth would speak. I imagine this method of writing is much more difficult than a typical novel which uses all the words at the author's disposal. It describes a heroic figure from the boy's perspective, the doctor who runs the ghetto orphanage, and his positive impact on the boy even in the midst of unspeakably horrible conditions. It is a book that reminds us of the need to remember, so we never repeat, the attempt to wipe out an entire race. ( )

This book is about the Holocaust and the cruelty human beings are capable of. The story takes place in the Warsaw ghetto and was brutal to read. Cruelty in this story comes not just from Nazis but from other victims. It was tough to get through and I had a hard time getting into the story as it was told mostly through dialog. ( )

Shepard’s fidelity to the historical record is impressive, but what makes The Book of Aron a work of art is his obedience to the boy’s restricted perspective. ... by reclaiming an insignificant voice and deploying it to observe a great man [Janusz Korczak], Shepard turns hell into a testament of love and sacrifice. The Book of Aron is his best novel yet, a short and moving masterpiece.
 
Korczak is, of course, a renowned ­historical figure: author, pediatrician, ­activist for the rights of the child and director of a Jewish orphanage in Warsaw that the Nazis ordered him to relocate within the walls of the ghetto. It is the relationship between Aron and Korczak that sits at the heart of the novel and, indeed, gives heart to this bleak story of loss, deprivation and betrayal.
