The Property - Rutu Modan

A young woman and her grandmother travel from Israel to Poland ostensibly to learn about property that was confiscated from their family by the Germans in World War II, but the truth to the grandmother’s visit is much more complex. Nicely illustrated, this a good tale to be told and to read as the days of the World War II survivors quickly grow dim. There's a lot to like about the story, as there is strong characterization, humor, pathos, history, and romance, but perhaps that is also the problem, as the story attempts to take on so many elements that it often loses track of itself, weakening the overall effect. Still, I did enjoy it and ate it up in a single sitting and it is hardly a thin volume; and I think you would too.
