Aftenposten:

"The book is a unique record of a person’s life, a person only allowed to live for fifteen years. What’s more, its themes, methods and approach make it an unusually important addition to research into the Nazi occupation of Norway (…) An episode in the history of the occupation – the persecution of the Jews – has now been recorded and elucidated better than ever before"
