Join us at The Annex on Tuesday August 14th for a signing and meet & greet with author of The Crate – Deborah Levison.
After surviving the Holocaust – in ghettos, on death marches, and in concentration camps – a young couple seeks refuge in North America. They settle into a new life, certain that the terrors of their past are behind them. They build themselves a cozy little cottage on a lake, a cottage that becomes emblematic of their victory over the Nazis. The charming retreat is a safe haven, a refuge from haunted memories.
That is, until a single act of appalling violence defiles their sanctuary. Poking around the dark crawl space beneath their cottage, they discover a wooden crate, nailed tightly shut and almost hidden from view.
Nothing could have prepared them for the horror of the crate’s contents – or how the peace and tranquility of their existence would be shattered.
THE CRATE: A Story of War, a Murder, and Justice is the debut book by author Deborah Vadas Levison (WildBlue Press, 2018). It recounts the true story of her family’s discovery and its shocking aftermath.
