Soon




Soon continues the incredibly moving story of Felix, a Jewish boy still struggling to survive in the wake of the liberation of Poland after the end of World War Two.

I hoped the Nazis would be defeated.
And they were.
I hoped the war would be over.
And it was.
I hoped we would be safe.
But we aren't.
