Reading Georgia Hunter s "We Were the Lucky Ones" is like being swung heart first into history . . . A brave and mesmerizing debut, and a truly tremendous accomplishment. Paula McLain, "New York Times"bestselling author of "The Paris Wife" An extraordinary, propulsive novel based on the true story of a family of Polish Jews who scatter at the start of the Second World War, determined to survive, and to reunite. It is the spring of 1939, and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows ever closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships facing Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurc family will be flung to the far corners of the earth, each desperately trying to chart his or her own path toward safety. As one sibling is forced into exile, another attempts to flee the continent, while others struggle to escape certain death by working endless hours on empty stomachs in the factories of the ghetto or by hiding as gentiles in plain sight. Driven by an extraordinary will to survive and by the fear that they may never see each other again, the Kurcs must rely on hope, ingenuity, and inner strength to persevere. In a novel of breathtaking sweep and scope that spansfive continentsandsix years and transports readersfromthe jazz clubs of Paris to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro toKrakow s most brutal prison and the farthest reaches of the Siberian gulag, "We Were the Lucky Ones "isa tribute to the capacity of the human spirit to endure in the face of the twentieth century s darkest moment."

We celebrated Father's Day today with a family membership & first visit to Gerald R Ford museum. I used the travel time wisely to read and am at chapter 24. This story is heartbreaking and yet I am amazed at how each family member pushed forward & did not give up!

5 ☆ We Were the Lucky Ones is so remarkable and unforgettable you‘ll be shedding both sad and happy tears. It begins in 1939 Poland as the Kurk family gathers to celebrate Passover aware that the winds of evil and change are already starting to erode their way of life. This gripping debut is one to read and savor then pass along to friends and family (yes it‘s that good!) Is based on the actual story of Georgia Hunter‘s grandparents and family.

Hunter bravely tells a gripping recount of the treacherous ordeals of her family, the Kurtz( Polish Jews)before and during WWII. Their instincts, cleverness, survival, determination, and faith through the most horrific of times encompassing five different countries by the end of the war, will astound you as a reader. Must read the afterward😢

79 years ago today, the Soviet army entered Auschwitz and liberated more than 7000 prisoners. Last year on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Koolulam a singing initiative, invited Holocaust survivors their children, grandchildren & great grandchildren (600 in total) to join together and sing a song about resilience & hope. #WeRemember

TrishB Got up to the disturbing news that 5% of Brits don‘t believe the Holocaust took place. It‘s a sad world. 5mo
Cinfhen That really is heartbreaking @TrishB 😭😭😭I can introduce them to survivors who still have their cattle numbers brandished on their arms 💔 5mo

Moray_Reads @TrishB @Andrew65 I saw this too, it's horrifying. I hope that the 2000 respondents aren't representative of the population but I suspect it's a vain hope 5mo
TrishB @Cinfhen I would hope that would work 💔 5mo
TrishB @Andrew65 @Moray_Reads it made me feel very sad 💔 5mo
Andrew65 @TrishB As an educationalist it makes me question why and how, as a person it leaves me heartbroken. 😭 @Moray_Reads (edited) 5mo
Cinfhen It‘s just sad because the remaining survivors are fewer and fewer @Andrew65 @TrishB @Moray_Reads and when they‘re gone so is their spoken record 5mo
Moray_Reads @Cinfhen it's a terrible thought that Holocaust denial will probably rise even further when there are no living faces to put on it. It's unbelievable that people can deny it at all 💔 5mo
TrishB @Andrew65 I know! There‘s no way you get through the education system without learning about it. I know both my kids did it at least every year from lots of different perspectives. Personally it just makes me sad 💔 and I don‘t think I know any of those people thankfully! (edited) 5mo
TrishB @Cinfhen @Moray_Reads @Andrew65 that‘s what I worry about too, when there are no survivors left. 5mo
Velvetfur But what about the cold hard evidence? Even when the last survivors are gone there will still be all the evidence. Maybe that weird 5% can be rounded up, taken to the remaining Auschwitz, locked up in there and left there overnight. Maybe then they'll believe. 5mo
Cinfhen I think unfortunately haters are gonna hate and deniers are gonna deny @Velvetfur and that‘s just the sad truth. Thank God it‘s only 5% 5mo
Velvetfur @Cinfhen Yeah you're right, sadly 😔In an ideal world I would put people into a situation or show them right up close to make them believe, but there is no ideal world 😓 I just find it so disrespectful to the memories of the victims to decide not to believe in it. 5mo
Cinfhen Yes, it‘s so sad @Velvetfur and equally infuriating 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds Interesting comment from the great Richard Evans at the LitFest on this (he was part of a successful lawsuit against a holocaust denier): gravity doesn‘t care if you don‘t believe in it and nor do the facts. The evidence of the Holocaust is plentiful and abundant [ so don‘t worry too much - you can‘t educate around stupid, ignorant or crazy but 5% in a population isn‘t all that bad!]. 5mo
Centique @GlassAsDiamonds @trishb just to add my voice to those who are shocked at holocaust deniers. But also to mention I listened to an interview with Will Storr who wrote a book called The Unpersuadables, and the phenomenon of people who won‘t listen to facts. It was really interesting. Not about that group of people specifically but all sorts - flat earthers etc. 5mo
Cinfhen That book sounds fascinating @Centique but is it dry?? Very academic?? I‘m looking to expand my reading but I‘m nervous 😬 5mo
Centique @Cinfhen you could just listen to the interview on the podcast instead? If you can access it? It‘s called You Are Not So Smart episode 119 👍 5mo
Cinfhen Thanks @Centique I‘ll see if I can find it 5mo

Definitely go listen to @Bookshelfthomasville @annebogel and @Sarahsbookshelves AND READ THIS AMAZING BOOK!

This was just lovely. Hunter's story of researching her family's experience during WWII was fascinating . . . so I put the book on hold. I'm so glad I did! Hunter alternates the chapters' points of view, telling the stories of her grandfather, his siblings, and her great-grandparents beautifully. She never falls into easy sentimentality, but I was emotionally and intellectually engaged throughout. Just beautiful!

My books set (at least in part) in #Poland that I have at home (more at the office). The first is a family‘s journey from Radon, Poland all over the world to escape Nazis. The second is a fantastically well-done account of a family sent to Auschwtiz from Hungary. The third, also set amidst the backdrop of WWII is partly set in post-war NY. The last is a children‘s novel based in the harsh reality of the author‘s grandfather. #augustisatrip

Just when I thought I had read about the Holocaust from every possible point of view along comes this book, which I recently read with my Book Club. I really liked it. It is based on the author's real family history so they truly were some of the lucky ones. This book is definitely worth reading and I highly recommend it.

1. Yes. Sometimes a paperback. Always have my Kindle with me. Nothing causes me more anxiety than having to wait somewhere and not having something to read. Got this from my father he never left the house without a paperback in the car to grab in case of an emergency.
2. Yes.
3. Yes to ebooks from Amazon or the library

#TBRtemptation post 3! Inspired by the true story of a Jewish family separated at WWII's outset. The Kurc family does their best to live normally as war looms before their Polish town. One member is exiled, one attempts fleeing Europe, others starve dong ghetto factory work, others hide their identities under the guise of being gentiles. They will fight to endure, to survive, to overcome constant fear and pain. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😁
