The Missing: The True Story of My Family in WWII

Michael Rosen

Jewish Book Week Family Day

Michael Rosen speaker
Nicolette Jones chair

By turns charming, shocking and heart-breaking, this is the true story of Michael Rosen’s search for his relatives who ‘went missing’ during the Second World War, told through prose and poetry. When Michael was growing up, stories often hung in the air about his great-uncles.

Over many years, Michael tried to find out exactly what happened. The story he uncovered was one of terrible persecution – and it has inspired his poetry for years since.

Here, poems old and new are balanced against an immensely readable narrative; a powerful tool for talking to children about the Holocaust.
