Merkwaardig geschreven boek: gortdroge passages over transporten worden afgewisseld met gedichten, de toon gaat van heel beschouwend naar heel persoonlijk en Presser wordt af en toe cynisch. Vanuit wetenschappelijk historisch perspectief kan je er van alles tegenin brengen, maar de aparte stijl van Presser geeft het wel iets heel eigens, dat ook wel lekker leest.

Ook veel geleerd, vooral over de fascinerende toestanden rond de Joodse Raad.
