Two for the Devil (Small Worlds, Volume 3) : Two for the Devil, the third volume in Allen Hoffman's critically acclaimed Small Worlds series, records the fate of the villagers of Krimsk as they encounter the twentieth century's greatest agents of evil: Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler. In Moscow at the height of the 1936 Stalinist purges, Grisha Shwartzman discovers on Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year and Day of Judgment - that he is in danger of liquidation by the secret police he serves. In 1942, Yechiel Katzman finds himself on a train of imprisoned Jews as it leaves the Warsaw ghetto on Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement - for "resettlement in the East." Stalin and Hitler decree certain death, but in the course of the experiences Grisha and Yechiel discover Jewish fates. Through memory, both men gain community, dignity, and the awareness of sanctity. Grisha's "Soviet" Rosh Hashanah and Yechiel's "Nazi" Yom Kippur are truly "Days of Awe."
