Max Borenstein's epic account of surviving as a Polish child born into desperate poverty; a boy who lived in Canada for 10 years but returned to Europe in 1933, the year that Adolf Hitler came to power; and a stateless refugee in 1930s Paris who managed to escape as France fell to the Nazis only to be interned in a Spanish camp, is breathtaking in scope. Rich in details of pre-war life in Poland, France and Canada and life for Jewish refugees in war-time Britain, If Home is Not Here gives rare insights into the experiences of an undocumented Jewish boy who is caught up in political forces beyond his control.
