I discovered this book on CBC’s Canada Reads, where it was the 2019 winner. Max Eisen, who immigrated to Canada following World War II, wrote this book at the age of 86, to make sure his story will be told, and not die with him. He tells of a happy childhood in Hungary, until his family were all taken to prison camps by the Nazis. He was the only member of his family to survive, and his father’s parting words to him were to “tell the world what happened here”. It’s not a pretty story, but one we should all know and be reminded of.
