Review

"Hugues brings the tumultuous twentieth century to vivid, messy life through the memories of the men and women who lived in the community. It's a testament to the human costs of catastrophe and the resilience of ordinary people in the face of unthinkable struggle."Bridey Heing, Times Literary Supplement"More than a one-place study, this engaging memoir reaches beyond the blinds of a quiet Berlin street to provide a window into 20th century German and world history via the prism of human experience." Family Tree Magazine"This is a terrific book. Hugues writes very well and she has a real eye for the killer vignette. Her gallery of characters is engrossing and, in one or two cases, unforgettable. Hannah's Dress will find an appreciative audience among all those interested in the Holocaust and twentieth-century German history generally." Brendan Simms, University of Cambridge"This unusual memoir uses the author's personal experience living in one street in Berlin as a window into the German past. She reaches out to elderly Jewish Holocaust survivors and refugees around the world who once lived on her street, and in her sophisticated narrative she peels back the layers hiding individual experiences so elusive to many professional historians." Deborah Hertz, University of California at San Diego"Hannah's Dress is a book that is both tender and bittersweet, shocking and full of surprises. It is a unique, moving and very well-written narrative that has justly been awarded the Simone Veil Prize." Elle"Pascale Hugues' account of her street and its inhabitants is a little wonder of a book." Neue Z

Urcher Zeitung"Hannah's Dress is an endlessly fascinating unpicking and re-weaving of history, a meticulously researched and hugely affecting academic work with all the epic sweep and emotional heft of the most engrossing of novels."Irish Examiner"A little gem"History Today"Captivating"New European"Hugues's book, which won the European Book Prize in 2014, is a beautifully written miscellany of emblematic stories."Literary Review"Finely researched and lovingly written."Financial Times"This is a gentle, thoughtful and non-sensationalist account [.

] and certainly worth reading - irrespective of whether or not you know Berlin." Morning Star"Move over Isherwood: Pascale Hugues has taken your storyteller crown, proving the German truism that the best stories really are lying around on the streets."The Irish Times"This is a terrific book. Hugues writes very well and she has a real eye for the killer vignette. Her gallery of characters is engrossing and, in one or two cases, unforgettable. Hannah's Dress will find an appreciative audience among all those interested in the Holocaust and twentieth-century German history generally." - Brendan Simms, University of Cambridge "This unusual memoir uses the author's personal experience living in one street in Berlin as a window into the German past.
