Description
After their grandmother's death, Jeremie and his brother attempt to learn more about their family's Jewish-Polish roots. But Jeremie is less interested in how the Holocaust affected his family and more interested in understanding what it means to be Jewish and Polish in today's world. They decide not to do the Holocaust trail--they won't go to Auschwitz--but instead go to Zelechow, the village where their grandfather was born; Warsaw, their grandmother's hometown; and Krakow, the city that hosts Europe's largest festival of Jewish culture. In their quest for identity, they gradually put together the pieces of their family history, while at the same time discovering a country still affected by its past and a culture greater than themselves.
Praise for "We Won't See Auschwitz: "
"A beautifully illustrated document of two Jewish brothers who visit Poland seeking their cultural heritage." --Shelf Awareness
