AUGUST 8th to AUGUST 22nd, 2011


THE THINGS WE CHERISHED
by PAM JENOFF

SYNOPSIS:
FROM DOUBLEDAY
  Pam Jenoff, whose first novel, The Kommandant’s Girl, was a Quill Award finalist, a Book Sense pick, and a finalist for the ALA Sophie Brody Award, joins the Doubleday list with a suspenseful story of love and betrayal set during the Holocaust.
  An ambitious novel that spans decades and continents, The Things We Cherished tells the story of Charlotte Gold and Jack Harrington, two fiercely independent attor­neys who find themselves slowly falling for one another while working to defend the brother of a Holocaust hero against allegations of World War II–era war crimes.
  The defendant, wealthy financier Roger Dykmans, mysteri­ously refuses to help in his own defense, revealing only that proof of his innocence lies within an intricate timepiece last seen in Nazi Germany. As the narrative moves from Philadelphia to Germany, Poland, and Italy, we are given glimpses of the lives that the anniversary clock has touched over the past century, and learn about the love affair that turned a brother into a traitor.
  Rich in historical detail, Jenoff’s astonishing new work is a testament to true love under the worst of circumstances.

I have read quite a bit about the concentration camps, the devastation of families,persecution and murder, starvation, cold, hunger, the ovens for gassing people, and pits for the people to fall in when they have been shot. The cattle cars of people being hauled to the concentration camps.

I also think of our family friend who has the numbers on left wrist. Also, I think of the master plan to kill off the Jewish population of Europe, to kill the gypsies and mentally ill and the disabled. It is one of ugliest things that people did to other human beings.

After the tears the first word is unspeakable pain. There really could never be one word to describe the hell they endured.

When I hear Holocaust I think sadness. Anything i read, watch, or hear about the Holocaust makes me upset. I great book with a Holocaust theme is Jenna Blum's "Those Who Save Us", but that book doesn't include as strong of love story.
