Chance Author Uri ShuleviWakening as an artist an experience that played a key role during this difficult time By turns dreamlike and nightmarish this heavily illustrated account of determination courage family loyalty and the luck of coincidence is a true publishing event. It's not the holocaust story you think of when you first hear that word Uri's family headed deep into Soviet country to survive world war II Holocaust education is definitely lacking so I am all for kids picking up this book It's easy to read and has lots of illustrations While my digital ARC didn't display them all correctly the ones it did show added to Uri's childhood story
