    I know it’s hard to believe, but some people actually haven’t read it.
    If you don’t know what it is, it’s a memoir by Chaim Shapiro of his experiences
    in the years of World War II, most of which time he spent in the USSR,
    and it’s one of the best-selling Jewish books of all time (or so I hear).

    I don’t understand why people still insist on writing Jewish fiction when the non-fictional accounts are so much more interesting.

    I read it years ago, and I still have it. In fact, Chaim Shapiro z”l was chazan at out shule for a few years, and he lived not far away from us.

    Although maybe not as interesting from an historical POV as Go my Son, I have a soft spot for The Scent Of Snowflowers by R.L. Klein. Haven’t re-read it in years, so maybe if I read it now I won’t be as enthusiastic, but it’s definitely a must read.

    And yes, way more suspenseful than any novel.
