Winner of a Jewish National Book Award for his previous book, Walking Israel, NBC Special Correspondent Martin Fletcher uses meticulous research and his own family’s history in this stunning novel.

Dramatizing explosive events in London and Palestine in the years directly following World War II, The List follows the lives of Edith and Georg, Austrian refugees who are expecting their first baby in a world unfriendly to Jews. Anti-Semitism sweeps across the streets of London even as the world learns of the atrocities of the Holocaust. As Edith and Georg desperately search for surviving family members, they struggle to stay afloat in a world riddled with terrorism, assassination attempts, and fear.

    " I enjoyed this book. I never realized how much animosity still existed at the end of the war. It did get a little tedious to me in some places but I enjoyed the telling of Georg and Edith's story and the love story that blossomed in Anna's life. "

    " A good story about what happened with many jewish refugees after WWII. "

    " I loved this story of a young Jewish couple expecting their first baby in post WWII England. I felt their heartbreak as they learned the fate of loved ones, crossing those names off their list as they learned of death, or holding onto the hope of survival. The pain of not knowing whether their loved ones lived or died is at times, palpable. Amidst this, we see their struggle with anti-Semitism in London and all the ugliness that brought out in people. Intertwined with this story is the story of the Jewish Resistance in Palestine and their efforts to get the British out of the country. Very good read. I gave it four stars for some rough language that I didn't feel was necessary. If you like historical fiction or WWII fiction, you will like this book. "

    " This is a Holocaust story with a unique perspective - the immediate aftermath of WWII in England and Palestine. The historical events in the novel (planned assassination of British foreign minister, terrorist acts in Palestine and London, antisemitism rallies in London) are real though the characters are not. The list of the title refers to the lists of relatives that many Jewish survivors kept. As they got news about their relatives, most of which was bad, they would cross the names off their list. Hope, in the form of new and renewed connections and especially in anticipation of a baby, enables the main characters to survive. The story is good but I also learned a lot. "
