From Richard Zimler, the acclaimed, internationally bestselling author of The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon, comes an unforgettable, deeply moving ode to solidarity, heroism and the kind of love capable of overcoming humanity’s greatest horror. Benjamin Zarco and his cousin Shelly are the only two members of their family to survive the Holocaust. Moving from Nazi-occupied Poland to modern-day USA, we witness those closest to Benni and Shelly tell of the deep influence of the beloved cousins on their lives. For within these intimate testimonies may lie the key to why they were saved and the unique bond that unites them.
Richard will be in conversation with Boyd Tonkin, an international journalist and television anchor.
