Levi’s War By Julie Thomas, HarperCollins, $35

Levi Horowitz doesn’t con­sider him­self soldier ma­te­rial. How­ever, as he flees Ber­lin in 1938 with the fam­ily trea­sures the young mu­si­cian finds him­self in a life-threat­en­ing po­si­tion at the Dan­ish bor­der.

It’s here he learns that he can take care of him­self.

Years later a tape emerges of Levi re­veal­ing to his rel­a­tives that he lived a life far dif­fer­ent to what they knew of him.

They are shocked by the rev­e­la­tions of a man they thought they knew. A man who came face to face with Hitler, who did things that were both shock­ing and heroic. An ab­sorb­ing, well-writ­ten read.
