We Were the Lucky Ones (a brief review)

We Were the Lucky Ones

We Were the Lucky Ones

by Georgia Hunter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s unusual for me to do a book review, but this is an unusual book.

Perhaps it is my own Polish — and nominally Jewish — background that brought this story home for me. It is a fascinating tale, told with love, compassion and raw truth. Meticulously researched, the heartbreak and strength of the Holocaust survivors is made real in both emotion and circumstance. I feared the details would be too difficult to read, but the spirit of the characters brings hope to their story. I was compelled to read it — and I’m glad I did.

It’s based on a true story, and the core of it is absolute: they were the lucky ones. But luck means something different in the middle of a war.
