Laura I haven't read this one, but I did see the movie which was amazing.

Kressel Housman My sister read me the first chapter, which had me in hysterics. What a voice this character has! But she warned me that the book gets graphic and gut-wrenching, so I haven't dared to try. Now I've decided I've read Holocaust books before, so I oughtn't be scared by another one.

May G-d spare the world from future holocausts on all people.

Laura Jonathan Safran Foer is an amazing writer. He's also married to Nicola Strauss, who co-wrote the Nanny diaries.

It takes place in modern time, but Jonathan goes to Israel to meet his grandfather. Amazing story.
