WE WERE THE LUCKY ONES

by | Read by Kathleen Gati, Robert Fass

Historical Fiction • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The Kurcs, a large, prosperous Jewish family, were comfortable in Radom, Poland--until the 1939 German invasion. Finding themselves dispersed all across Europe, South America, and elsewhere, the family does all in its power to reunite after the war. Narrator Kathleen Gati doesn't overdramatize this emotional Holocaust story, but neither does she alter her tone to create identifiable characters. Narrator Robert Fass offers a much-needed break in the story's tension as he delivers the historical aspects of the author's account of her family's experiences prior to and during WWII. Gati's use of a slight accent lends credibility to the hardships and heartaches the Kurcs faced--from terrifying encounters with Nazis to the betrayals of friends that led to hiding and, finally, escape from certain death. Intense listening. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
