 Special guest: Allan Rosenfeld, author of Holocaust Lumber.
Growing up on a lumberyard just outside Toronto, Allan knew that he was different from most other kids. But it wasn’t the stacks of wood or the hard work of helping out around the yard that defined him – it was his role as the oldest child of two Holocaust survivors. Always and above all else, Allan knew that his parents had suffered through terrible atrocities, and that he couldn’t cause them any more pain, under any circumstances.

Holocaust Lumber is a collection of 30 short stories that capture the complexities and humanity of his parents. Told with unflinching honesty, these stories capture a world of lumber and love, a setting of sweetness and survival, a nightmare of guilt, and the lighthearted, absurd moments that are part of all families.
