As the author of 2 award-winning books about W.W. II, (LIFE IN A JAR: THE IRENA SENDLER PROJECT and BEFORE THE COURT OF HEAVEN), I’d like to share my recommendations for other books about the war and the Holocaust, that are well written. These works inspired and informed me.
Each, in their own way, are visceral depictions of a critical time in history – seen through the eyes of ordinary people living in extraordinary times. These characters live in their eternal present, and we understand character during that time, not just the plot. I truly believe this helps us make critical choices in our extraordinary time.
