I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of A World Erased through the publisher and Netgalley:
His Grandparents were survivors of the Holocaust, his Grandmother witnessed her family murdereded for the simple fact that they were Jews, and she felt helpless to stop the monsters.
He hears stories of his Grandfather who beat up on Nazi’s in a Warsaw Ghetto.
On December 30th 1999 while Noah is finishing out his studies he learns his Grandfather (Poppy) died just after finishing his first Semester at College.
Both his Grandmother and Grandfather had survived Auschwitz-Birkenau.
This is a story of survival, of determination and strength and a story of the pain the Holocaust has put onto families even a generation or two later, but more than that it is a story of strength.
I give A World Erased five out of five stars.
