WINNER of the Opzij Literature Prize 2019



They knew their survival depended on each other.

They had to live for each other.



It is 1940 and the Final Solution is about to begin. The Nazis have occupied The Netherlands but resistance is growing and two Jewish sisters - Janny and Lien Brilleslijper - are risking their lives to save those being hunted, through their clandestine safehouse 'The High Nest'. It becomes one of the most important safehouses in the country but when the house and its occupants are betrayed the most terrifying time of the sisters' lives begins. This is the beginning of the end.



With German defeat in sight, the Brilleslijper family are put on the last train to Auschwitz, along with Anne Frank and her family. What comes next challenges the sisters beyond human imagination as they are stripped of everything but their courage, resilience and love for each other.

Roxanne lives in the High Nest and has spent the last decade investigating its history and also the lives - and fates - of the people who lived and hid there. She has travelled across the world to talk to the relatives of Janny and Lein to piece together this incredible story. She also has the full support of the remaining family relatives, particularly the children, of the sisters. She writes the book from the perspective of Janny, the youngest sister, so we discover the horrors and losses of this epic story along with her. Heartbreaking!
