The Boys from Bondi
University of Queensland Press
The world of ten-year-old Jacob and his younger brother Solly falls apart when they are orphaned and sent to a Sydney children's home, where other refugee Jewish children gather as Hitler rises to power in Europe. Jacob starts an apprenticeship as a printer but suffers racist taunts while developing an awareness of his cultural heritage. The story has many parallels to the author’s own experiences.
