Pickpick

An excellent and sensitively written book which shows the lasting impact on the Lubinksi family following the Second World War and the Jewish Genocide during the war.

There are great themes explored throughout this book and how the family are changed by what happened during the war, and these are brought to the forefront once more when a former Nazi from the camps is discovered living in their neighbourhood.

Andrew65 Their early years in the US are covered through this book and how quite small events to others bring more sinister consequences back to the family. This is very cleverly and very well written and should be required reading for everyone. I particularly liked the section talking about whether staff at the Hebrew School should be discussing the Genocide with the young children attending or any children. So very powerful. 1y
Andrew65 I strongly recommend the book and have to say the narrating of this audiobook was excellent, with the narrator getting the tone and presentation of the book exactly right.

Thanks to NetGalley, the author and the publishers for providing a copy of this book for me, for an an open and honest review. #TheTakeAwayMen #NetGalley
