message 1: by Ðɑηηɑ (new)

Ðɑηηɑ I loved The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory and can better relate to Jewish characters (guess why). Thank you for this list!


message 2: by Tim (new)

Tim O'Brien The Book of Israel deserves a mention. It doesn't seem to be on Good Reads tho


message 3: by Helen (new)

Helen Can someone explain how Anna Karenina ended up on this list please?


message 4: by Aurora (new)

I want to know that too. I know that the character of Levin has a Jewish sounding name, but he is NOT Jewish, and he is a stand-in for Leo Tolstoy...


message 5: by Greta (new)

Greta Nr.66 The liberation of the camps. Its non fiction and its holocaust.


message 6: by Kate (new)

Kate I took the liberty of removing The Liberation of the Camps and Anna Karenina, for not matching the title/description of the list (non-fiction and about the Holocaust; and not about Judaism or having any Jewish characters or even a Jewish author, respectively).
