    Absolutely spot on

    I grew up in this part of London with parents and Grandmothers who fled Germany before WW2. Dorice and Cosmo were where I spent time with them. I recall my family getting confirmation until 1971 of relatives not having survived the Shoah. Reading this book was like reading my own history though my family were fortunately not so impoverished. The writer captures the sense of hope and then desperation and finally acceptance of the inevitable. I thought it was a great read.

    Gripping

    So sad but saved from being another awful wwii tragedy by good characters and a driving force to move forward from despair to hope. Not an easy feat given the subject matter.

    Touching, historically accurate read.

    I read this novel for my book club and worried it was supposed to be something "life changing"... something Tusdays w/ Mauryish. It was not. Simply written, unassuming, very human. It was at times heartberaking, and I found myself stirred up and indignant over some of the happenings. All in all a very nice novel for anyone fond of history,Jewish affairs, or stories about the love a family has for one another.

    A Must Read

    Martin Fletcher takes us to the problems the survivors face after WWII ends. He emphasizes the anti-semitism that exists in England and the on-going problems in Israel. It's wonderfully written and enlightening. Anyone interested in history and human rights will love this book.

    A book you will not forget

    The List is a book you will never forget. Most people are under the impression that once WWII was over, everyone was allowed to go home, and start all over with respect and help. That is not the truth, and it is sad that we have to wait all these years to find out what really happened. People who lost every thing and everyone in their family, there was no home to go back to, and not being wanted any where, and yet it is expected that they start over with nothing, but scars and memories of what Germany did. They were not even allowed to go to their own country. In the end, at least there was hope for this couple, and through agonizing work, hope and prejudice, they were able to accomplish one thing that everyone in this world is entitled too...LIFE! We all need to embrace each other no matter race, religion or creed, and just maybe we wouldn't be having wars that ruin lives. By saving one person, we may be saving one race or nationality and bring peace to the world. Well done Mr. Fletcher!
