The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million by Daniel Mendelsohn
Daniel Mendelsohn grew up being told he looked like his great-uncle, Shmiel Yaeger, who perished along with his wife and four daughters in the Holocaust. The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million is a memoir of the author's obsessive five-year search to find what ultimately happened to them. It took trips to many different places around the world, including Israel and the Ukrainian town of Bolechow where his relatives lived. It was a chance encounter in a Polish village that finally unlocked the mystery surrounding his family's history. The Lost has received positive reviews with the Cleveland Plain Dealer saying, "The Lost is an extraordinary book, and in its breadth and uniqueness of vision, is one of the exceptional books of this year."
