«Frances Stonor Saunders vividly captures the horror and absurdity of life in the theatre of conflict, and human versatility... The Suitcase is...a study in the meaningful artifice of human experience.»

, Tablet

«Excellent... The Suitcase intrigues and fascinates and causes the reader to reflect on the uneven fates of those families that survived the Holocaust and those that did not.»

, Literary Review

«A beautifully written, beautifully composed investigation into her [Saunders's] father's origins, and also the idea of a border. It still haunts me.»

, Times Literary Supplement, *Books of the Year*

«Frances Stonor Saunders has almost single-handedly started off a branch of sub-history... An extraordinarily good book, and I recommend it to anyone.»

, BBC Radio 4 (WHO PAID THE PIPER?)

«A completely fascinating and disturbing story written with consummate elegance and unsettling power. A forgotten corner of twentieth-century history brilliantly revealed to us.»
