This second edition of Engraved in Flesh is the first book in any language on the work and life of Piotr Rawicz, the author of one 'wantonly brilliant novel (Irving Howe).

The novel, written in French, tells the story of Boris, who survives life on the run in occupied Poland by pretending not to be Jewish: the sign of the convenant, engraved in his flesh, is the sign of life...or of death. Rawicz, born in L'wow in 1919, committed suicide in Paris in 1982.

Anthony Rudolf demonstrates that on the strength of one novel Rawicz will remain, along with Levi, Antelme and a handful of others, an enduring witness and interpreter of the Holocaust.

Engraved in Flesh is the fourth in a series of five texts on Jewish and Holocaust themes.

Anthony Rudolf's edition and revised translation of Rawicz's masterpiece Blood from the Sky was published by Elliott and Thompson in 2004.
