There is symbolism - particularly that of the heron â in The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman that I still do not understand. The magical realism of the golem, the heron, and the angel of death lends an unusual tone to a story of war and the Holocaust. The book remains a memorable story of war but ultimately leaves a lasting impression of love and is even more so the very human emotional story of a creature who is not created as human.
