Book 4 review- 🖤🖤🖤🖤/5🖤
We Were The Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter
This is a heartbreaking read about a Jewish family living in Poland at the beginning of WWII. The Kurc family is made up of the parents and their five adult children. The story follows them through their courageous journey of survival. I was especially drawn to the characters Mila and Felicia...a mother and young daughter. I could not imagine living during such an awful experience and reading a book like this is a reminder of the luxuries we all have today that are taken for granted at times. I liked the book even better once I read it was based on a true story of the authors family. My only complaint was because the family is so large it is hard to follow at times. SPOILER ALERT: the happy ending is something I am not used to when reading a WWII book!
