Book Review – Questions I am asked about the Holocaust

Cover image for Questions I am asked about the Holocaust / Hédi Fried ; translated from the Swedish by Alice E. Olsson.

By Heidi Fried

An Auschwitz survivor, Heidi Fried has spent her life educating young people about the Holocaust, in hope that teaching others to never forget what happened means it won’t happen again. In her book, Fried answers some of the questions she has been asked. It’s moving, powerful, sincere, and the question and answer format makes it easy to absorb. A brief snapshot of a period of time that will, hopefully, never be repeated.

Book Review – Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies

Cover image for Bridge burning : & other hobbies / Kitty Flanagan.

By Kitty Flanagan

If, like me, you enjoy comedian Kitty Flanagan’s sense of humour give her book a go. To enjoy it even more get it as an audiobook as she reads it. It’s like one of her stand up routines in book form (that’s why I’m suggesting the audiobook). Warning – If listening to this in public you will get odd looks as you spontaneously burst out laughing.
