Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the National Book Award

The Painted Bird is one of the most shocking indictments of Nazi madness and terrors of the Holocaust during World War II. It is a story about the proximity of terror and savagery to innocence and love. It is a vivid and graphic portrayal of the hellish Nazi occupation of Eastern Europe as seen through the eyes of a boy struggling for survival, an alien child lost in a world gone mad.

Synopsis:

A dark-haired, olive-skinned boy is forced to fend for himself during the war and wander alone from one Slav village to another, sometimes hounded and tortured, sometimes sheltered and taught. This is a portrayal of the Nazi occupation of Eastern Europe, seen through the eyes of a boy.
