Description:

Set in Communist Hungary during the 1956 Revolution, Never, Again relates the story of seven-year-old Tomi Wolfstein, the son of Holocaust survivors who never divulged their Second World War concentration camp experiences to him. The novel, called “remarkable” (The Gazette), follows Tomi’s physical, emotional and symbolic journey from innocence to experience as he and his family try to flee resurgent anti-semitism. Never, Again’s adventures resonate with the complications of a childhood during turbulent times, when issues of faith, prejudice, ignorance, hate and nationalism come into focus and challenge one’s kindness, loyalty, hope and courage.
