Description

A stolen house on a Polish square. A pop bottle on Vancouver's east side. Nadia Baltzan knows a few things about theft. The Girl Who Stole Everything is a fresh and telling portrait of the relationship between prewar Polish shtetl life and Jewish lives today. In Poland, a house stands empty on a village square seventy-five years after its owners were killed. In Vancouver, the aftermath of a murder overturns the life of the victim's niece. In these old and new worlds a mystery lurks, and Norman Ravvin lovingly recovers the past of both.
