Mining History's Depths description

Damian Barr’s You Will Be Safe Here is a heartbreaking novel that links two dark periods of South African history to examine trauma and its terrible echoes through time. Bart van Es delves deep into his family’s history to explore the Dutch response to Germany’s murderous Third Reich in his Costa Award-winning The Cut Out Girl. Their meticulously researched, beautifully told stories tread lightly across sensitive truths, powerfully demonstrating history’s resonance across fiction and non-fiction.
