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
