Gift of Time, Frances Prince

When the global pandemic hit Melbourne in March 2020, Frances Prince resolved to spend her afternoons in lockdown reading to David, her 95-year-old father. The books they explored together revived David’s memories of his own Holocaust experience and his life as a Polish Jewish university student in postwar Munich. As the days passed, what began as a reading project to fill the time, turned into an unexpected and rewarding journey of discovery.
