I highly recommend this beautifully written book about a rarely discussed subject: What happens to survivors of the holocaust decades later? Obviously this experience would be a prime case for PTSD. But what would that feel like? Mr Levin fleshes it out for us. Also, don't miss the film of the same title. I felt the film was very true to the feeling of the book. Try both!

Yet another good read to remember the Holocaust. We should never forget and this reminds us yet today that the human spirit is more powerful than any crazy dictator.
Highly recommend.

In his previous novel “Nadine” Matt Cohen created the members and relations of the Bronski family. They were a family of American Jews living in Paris at the beginning of the German occupation in WW2. The parents Jakob and Gabrielle attempted to flee Paris and reach the Spanish border. They left their child Nadine in the care of an aunt. The novel “Nadine” tracked the life of their daughter of the same name. The parents Jakob and Gabriele were betrayed and were taken of the train before reaching the border. Gabrielle disappeared and died in one of the death camps. Jakob was sent to the transit station called Drancy near Paris. It is the events touched by his life that are the basis for this novel “Emotional Arithmetic”. In the Drancy camp, Jakob became the protector of two parentless children. The Americana Jewish Child Melanie came under his protection as well as Christian boy named Christopher.” Emotional Arithmetic” is a story of flashbacks surrounding the events taking place after an middle-aged Melanie has located Jakob in a Russian mental hospital and has bought him to their family hobby farm in Canada to live out the last part of his life.

The structure of the novel is to move forward with sections based on the memories and impressions of individual characters. This can be quite effective. The evocation of the life in the Drancy transit camp from the viewpoints of Jakob and Melanie is quite vivid. I have read a history of the experiences of the French resistance women who were imprisoned there, and the feeling of that price of non-fiction and Cohen’s fiction illustrate how there can be multiple ways of writing history. Cohen’s aim in the novel was to show the effect of the cruelty in these camps as they pass through the years and through the generations and he is quite effective.
