Lion hearts : a family saga of refugees and asylum seekers / Henry R. Lew
A biography of Lonek Lew, the author's father, told through the lives of over twenty people he was friendly or associated with, a number of whom were historical figures. Using his father's clear and detailed accounts of his life in pre war Poland, the Holocaust and his colourful life in Melbourne, as well as personal meetings and memories, the author assembles portraits of extraordinary people living through extraordinary events. The book is an important work, substantially researched, and written with great empathy. It makes for compelling reading, highlighting European anti semitism, the Jewish refugee and survival story, and the resilience of human nature in rebuilding lives after devastating experiences.
