This quiet story of the Holocaust chronicles the lives of several Danes through the summer of 1943. It is the discontinuity of small things--the scattered inconveniences, chance meetings, glimpses of injustice, and indulgences of hope, --that haphazardly directs each individual to his fate. An hypnotic story of ordinary people caught in a silent maelstrom, ultimately driven to extraordinary feats. FIC000000

Review: The Discontinuity of Small Things

User Review  - Siobhan Fallon - Goodreads

A novel about World War II from a Danish perspective. Things happen on a smaller scale, but somehow these more ordinary acts of horror are all the more striking. Gorgeous. Read full review

Review: The Discontinuity of Small Things

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

Things get tied up a little too neatly. There are some great WWII Europe images in here, though. Things you don't think about or see in WW II movies that actually happened. Read full review
