Book Review: Jacob's Courage, by Charles Weinblatt
For a clear and no-hold's-barred description of life as a Jew in Nazi Germany, you can't beat Jacob's Courage, by Charles Weinblatt.
From the suffocating feeling of the Nazi noose tightening around the character's necks as they struggle to escape to the horror of a concentration camp, it's all here in minute detail.
Weinblatt draws on his mother's memoirs and other family member's experiences to create a fully documented description of one Jewish family's harrowing journey through the World War Two era.
