A biography of Lonek Lew, the author's father, told through the lives of over twenty people he was friendly or associated with, a number of whom were historical figures.¬†Using his father's clear and detailed accounts of his life in pre - war Poland, the Holocaust and his colourful life in Melbourne, as well as personal meetings and memories, the author assembles portraits of extraordinary people living through extraordinary events.¬† The¬†book is an important work, substantially researched, and written with great¬†empathy. It makes for compelling reading, highlighting European anti - semitism,¬†the Jewish refugee and survival story, and the resilience of human nature in¬†rebuilding lives after devastating experiences.¬†Professor Suzanne Rutland OAM,¬†Professor of Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies, Faculty of Arts and Social,¬†Sciences, University of Sydney.
