For May, the Online Book Club will read and discuss Once We Were Brothers by Ronald H. Balson. I love historical fiction and this book sounds interesting – two men who grew up as brothers, but one possibly betrays the other during the Holocaust.
Here is the Goodreads summary:
The gripping tale about two boys, once as close as brothers, who find themselves on opposite sides of the Holocaust.
Elliot Rosenzweig, a respected civic leader and wealthy philanthropist, is attending a fundraiser when he is suddenly accosted and accused of being a former Nazi SS officer named Otto Piatek, the Butcher of Zamosc. Although the charges are denounced as preposterous, his accuser is convinced he is right and engages attorney Catherine Lockhart to bring Rosenzweig to justice. Solomon persuades attorney Catherine Lockhart to take his case, revealing that the true Piatek was abandoned as a child and raised by Solomon’s own family only to betray them during the Nazi occupation. But has Solomon accused the right man?
Plan to join the discussion on the blog or on Facebook in a closed group on May 30!
