Filtering the darkest, most dramatic period of modern Jewish history through the naive, often sage, perspective of a remarkable dog, The Jewish Dog offers readers a view of the Holocaust as never seen before. This bestselling novel in Israel follows the life and thoughts of Caleb, a contemplative dog unusually fascinated with human affairs. Born into a German-Jewish household in the mid-1930s, Caleb witnesses firsthand the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust. When events separate him from his Jewish owners, he is adopted by a Nazi family and employed by the SS as a military dog. Deeply ironic and even humorous, The Jewish Dog presents political commentary on humanity and degradation, as Caleb's philosophical musings explore loyalty, identity, and the fine line that separates humanity from animals.

"Kravitz employs harrowing, detailed imagery and fluidity of language ... The result is powerful and heart-wrenching, and Caleb is unforgettable. A remarkable achievement." Kirkus Reviews
