Just when you think there are no new angles to stories about the Holocaust something comes along that is both desperately tragic but also vital and healing. Lientje’s story is heartbreaking, but it’s related here with compassion and love. It’s about families and surviving. The Dutch don’t come out of this in any great light, but it’s far less about blame than understanding. ( )
  asxz | Mar 13, 2019 |
It is an astonishing co-production between subject and author, now professor of English at St Catherine’s College Oxford, and has been recognised with the award of the 2018 Costa Prize for Biography.

It is a story of benevolence and betrayal — and an extraordinary portrait of the refined hypocrisy that still informs so much Dutch politics.
 
Winner of the 2018 Costa biography award, this deeply moving account ... is the result of his personal journey into the history of his family and his country’s treatment of the Jews.
