I'm fairly sure I have read this too. Is it a search for some artifacts?

A bit hard going at the start but what happened to the Jewish banking family from having incredible wealth to their treatment during the run up to war and during the war.

Thats the one, yes I found it very interesting. I was reading a review of something else he has written recently and thinking I ought to source.

Made me want to go and have a search and found the following.

De Waal's second book, The White Road, was published by Chatto & Windus in 2015 and was aired on BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week. It follows de Waal's journey to discover the history of porcelain, from porcelain first made in the hills of Jingdezhen in China to the first makers of English porcelain, William Cookworthy and Josiah Wedgwood.

apparently he is an artist, potter, ceramics etc. Interesting chap.
