What sets We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter apart from other books I have read about the Holocaust is its simultaneously narrow and expansive scope. Amazingly, this is the story of one family. Yet, it reaches across Poland, Siberia, France, Northern Africa, Italy, South America, and even the United States of America. This is a remarkable story of survival in war. It paints not only a horrific image of the war but also a beautiful picture of family, love, and hope.
