Finding Phil: Lost in War and Silence, with Paul Levy

Wednesday, October 5th, 5:30 p.m.

Concord historian Paul Levy visits Gibson's Bookstore to present this meticulously researched biography of his Uncle Phil, killed in World War II, in Finding Phil: Lost in War and Silence.

Paul Levy was a year old when his Uncle Phil was killed in World War II, and his family, like many, faced their grief with silence. Upon retirement, and seventy years after his uncle's death, he set out to discover what might still be found about Phil. At every step, research led to unexpected turns, and ultimately revealed a vivid portrait of Phil's life and, astoundingly, of his death. In the process, the author also gained insights into war, antisemitism, family silences, and heroism, and encountered intriguing and sometimes famous characters who had touched Phil's life.
