Beschreibung

"Rich and riveting, complex and compelling, powerful and poetic." (Peter M. Gianotti, Newsday)
In Odessa, the greatest port on the Black Sea, a dream of cosmopolitan freedom inspired geniuses and innovators, from the writers Alexander Pushkin and Isaac Babel to Zionist activist Vladimir Jabotinsky and immunologist Ilya Mechnikov. Yet here too was death on a staggering scale, as World War II brought the mass murder of Jews carried out by the city's Romanian occupiers. Odessa is an elegy for the vibrant, multicultural tapestry of which a thriving Jewish population formed an essential part, as well as a celebration of the survival of Odessa’s dream in a diaspora reaching all the way to Brighton Beach.

A fascinating account but an obnoxious narrator

Audio book narrators should refrain from attempting to impersonate the accents of foreign characters and find out how to pronounce foreign words.
