The Invisible Wall

I typically hate nonfiction, so it means a lot to plug a book that's nonfiction like The Invisible Wall by Harry Bernstien. It reads like fiction, and I learned a lot; the best combination.

And now for the shortest summary ever: England, poverty, wartime, Jewish traditions, hopes.... Told from the point of view of a child. One reason why it is delightful to me is because it is NOT WWII; it seems to me that it's not often a wartime book featuring Judisam is not about WWII.

Throughout the whole book, it's both funny and sad when Bernstein says that it was not often someone crossed the invisible wall for any reason--yet this occurrence happens over a dozen times. It's interesting tho think about as you read. Humans are so silly.
