Trap with a Green Fence is Richard Glazar's memoir of deportation, escape, and survival. In economical prose, Glazar weaves a description of Treblinka and its operations into his evocation of himself and his fellow prisoners as denizens of an underworld. Glazar gives us compelling images of these horrors in a tone that remains thoughtful but sober, affecting but simple.
"Mr. Glazer waited one generation to give us a crystal clear account of the Treblinka Nazi hell. The message he conveys to us in his very personal way is: the most horrible thing about this Jewish catastrophe is not remembering it, but that it happened." —Arnost Lustig
