The Light After the War by Anita Abriel- Our Review
Inspired by the true story of the author’s Holocaust survivor mother, ‘The Light After The War’ is an astonishingly staggering book of hope.
Vera Frankel and her best friend are bound for a train to Auschwitz along with their mothers. Miraculously, the girls escape the train en route to the concentration camp.
These two young Hungarian refugees are all alone, vying for survival in a diabolical war, plagued with guilt and fear for the fate of their mothers still aboard the train.
Over the next six years, the girls fight through four continents and are faced with immeasurable loss and hardship, yet despite all the trials that are heaped upon them they are still standing.
Looking for work and forging careers, falling in love and navigating the world to create a new life, the strength and courage of these women is awe inspiring.
A book that is heart stirring, filled with promise and testament to the triumph of the human spirit.
