Synopsis

The internationally acclaimed Polish bestseller about the Holocaust, now for the first time in English. A remarkable true story of love and survival. The Warsaw Ghetto 1942: When Izolda's husband, Shayek, is imprisoned, she sets out to release him. She changes her name, her hair, her religion. Eventually she is captured and deported to Auschwitz. But even there, she trusts that her love will save them both. ------ Why Peirene chose to publish this book: 'This is a beautiful love story but also an incredible account of one woman's quest to be heard. Told with astounding simplicity, the book recreates the Holocaust not as an historical event but as a terrifying, shared, experience. I am amazed - and honoured - that it was left to Peirene to publish this book for the first time in English.' Meike Ziervogel, Publisher
