Bringing the heat: Nazis and Golems

The World that We Knew by Alice Hoffman, Hanni Kohn sends daughter Lea to a rabbi, who creates a mystical Golem who is sworn to protect her.  Together, they flee to Germany for France, where Lea finds a soulmate and the rabbi’s daughter joins the resistance. “WWII fiction has glutted the market, but Hoffman’s unique brand of magical realism makes this a standout” (Booklist)
