Book Description

3 Feb 2012
Amir and Effi collected relatives. With Holocaust survivors for parents and few other 'real' relatives alive, relationships operated under a "Law of Compression" in which tenuous connections turned friends into uncles, cousins and grandparents. Life was framed by Grandpa Lolek, the parsimonious and eccentric old rogue who put his tea bags through Selektion, and Grandpa Yosef, the neighborhood saint, who knew everything about everything, but refused to talk of his own past. Amir and Effi also collected information about what happened Over There. This was more difficult than collecting relatives; nobody would tell them any details because they weren't yet Old Enough. The intrepid pair won't let this stop them, and their quest for knowledge results in adventures both funny and alarming, as they try to unearth their neighbors' stories. As Amir grows up, his obsession with understanding the Holocaust remains with him, and finally Old Enough to know, the unforgettable cast of characters that populate his world open their hearts, souls, and pasts to him... Translated by Jessica Cohen from the Hebrew Shoah Shelanu.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book 22 May 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have not read such a wonderful book on the subject of the Holocaust in many years. It is written with such sensitivity, humour and total understanding. It simply flows like a strong river, invoking laughter and tears of agony at the same time. I can't wait until the author's next book is translated.
