We Were the Lucky Ones

We Were the Lucky Ones


One of Annie's favorite books of 2017!

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 closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.

As (sort of) recommended on Episode 112 of From the Front Porch and then HEARTILY recommended by Annie after she finished it.
