內容簡介

《紐約時報》暢銷冠軍
由真實故事改編,因為二戰而被迫分離的猶太家庭,決心努力生存及再度相聚,向希望和愛的勝利致敬
「在面對全球逆境與變化,愛更要及時。」─《Glamour雜誌》

1939年的春天,即使戰爭一步步靠近,三代同堂的Kurc一家仍盡最大的努力過著平凡生活。這家人的家常閒聊是關於新生兒的誕生和年輕一代正在萌芽的戀情,而不是越來越逼近及威脅猶太人的恐怖政權。很快地,恐懼佔據了整個歐洲,Kurc一家被強迫遷離到世界各個角落,試圖引導自己走向最安全的道路。家中成員有的被迫流亡,有的試圖逃離,而另一些人則在貧民窟的工廠每日飢餓且超時工作,或是試圖隱藏自己身為猶太人的事實。基於堅定不移的意志與強烈的生存感驅使,儘管再也無法見到其他家族成員,Kurc一家仍對未來抱持希望,以意志力生存下去。

這是一段非凡且勵志的溫暖故事,展現20世紀人類最黑暗的時刻,而人類又如何從中茁壯及成長。

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of World War II, determined to survive—and to reunite—We Were the Lucky Ones is a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds
 
“Love in the face of global adversity? It couldn't be more timely.” —Glamour
 
It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.
 
As one sibling is forced into exile, another attempts to flee the continent, while others struggle to escape certain death, either by working grueling hours on empty stomachs in the factories of the ghetto or by hiding as gentiles in plain sight. Driven by an unwavering will to survive and by the fear that they may never see one another again, the Kurcs must rely on hope, ingenuity, and inner strength to persevere.
 
An extraordinary, propulsive novel, We Were the Lucky Ones demonstrates how in the face of the twentieth century’s darkest moment, the human spirit can endure and even thrive.
