From the busy marketplaces of pre-war Krakow, Poland, to the horror of the Holocaust and the haven of Schindler's factory, to the apparent peace and safety of a suburban backyard in Melbourne, Australia, this is the story of two sisters who miraculously survived.

Their extraordinary life stories are interwoven with the childhood and later memories of the narrator, Anna, daughter and niece of the two sisters, Hela and Janka.

Through the recollections and dreams of these three voices we learn of worlds and people forever lost, of shattered hopes, of the fragility of survival, and of the power of the human spirit.

About the Author:

Born in Paris is 1947, Anna emigrated with her parents to Melbourne in 1949. She is married with three grown-up sons and one grandchild. Her love of art, music and painting has been engendered in her three sons. Anna became an English and French teacher in 1985 and is now Head of LOTE (Languages Other Than English) in a private school in Melbourne.

She visited Krakow and Auschwitz on her honeymoon, and is a member of Descendants of the Shoah Inc., a second-generation group that meets regularly in Melbourne to discuss their parents' relationship to the Holocaust, and their relationships with their parents.

Her first book, If All the Seas Were Ink.. (1993), was about her uncle Jozef Gross, one of the group saved by Schindler.

Shortlisted for the NSW Premier's Awards.

Review:

'Fascinating, whimsical, robust and horrifying does eloquent honour to all the lost sisters of history.' -- Thomas Keneally
