The Trumpets of Jericho is really two novels in one, the rousing story of one of the more remarkable episodes in the annals of Jewish resistance to the Nazis-the prisoner uprising at the Auschwitz- Birkenau death camp in October, 1944-and the just as inspiring account of the four young Jewish women arrested and brutally tortured for their role in the revolt. In Trumpets, J. Michael Dolan, a lifelong student of the SS Vernichtungslagers, or extermination camps, has produced a work that he believes will move you as deeply as its subject has him. Aside from painting the most definitive picture to date of this particular slice of history, he explores, among other themes, religion and the existence of God, the psychology of genocide, friendship and romantic love, sexual and other pathologies, the nature of good and evil, right and wrong. Above all, he shows how the most monstrous single crime ever committed was in the end no match for the indomitability, the grandeur of the human spirit.
