On April 24th we met at Patti's home to discuss The Lost, The Search for Six of Six Million by Daniel Mendelsohn. This is an amazing story of how one young Jewish boy's interest was piqued toward his family's history because of the stories that his grandfather told and also because he was told that he looked so much like a great Uncle that was lost in the Holocaust with his family. As an adult he starts a world wide quest to speak with people who knew this family in their hometown in Ukraine. It is a remarkable, touching, horrifying tale of loss, and the bonds of family that stretch beyond generations.
