The puppet boy of Warsaw – Eva Weaver


ImageThe puppet boy of Warsaw is not just another ‘holocaust’ novel. It documents one of the most harrowing stories of the 20th century – but with a difference – it is a tale of two sides.

Mike is a young Jewish boy trapped in the Warsaw Ghetto, relying on his grandfather’s old coat which hides inside it not only puppets, but secrets of many kinds. His puppets not only keep the horrors of the ghetto out of mind for a few precious moments, they also touch the ‘soul’ of one Nazi soldier.

These two characters’ stories cover 70 years and thousands of miles – and are finally brought together in New York outside a modern theatre.

 

Historical facts fill the final pages of the novel – again as a reminder of who and what must never be forgotten.

Beautifully written – cleverly crafted. A must read.
