Our English-language book discussion group focuses on literature related to Poland and Polish culture. This month we’re discussing We Were The Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter.
It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate their paths to safety.
