about

This volume describes the lives of the novel’s protagonists in the Lodz Ghetto at the beginning of World War II. Chava Rosenfarb, herself a survivor of the Lodz Ghetto, Auschwitz, and Bergen-Belsen, draws on her own history to create realistic characters who struggle daily to retain a sense of humanity and dignity despite the physical and psychological effects of ghetto life. Although horrendous experiences are depicted, the light of faith in the human spirit shines through this novel’s every page.

Chava Rosenfarb is a Holocaust survivor who has published poetry, prose, and drama in both English and Yiddish. Her English titles include Bociany and Of Lodz and Love. She now resides in Alberta, Canada.

Editorial Reviews

"Combining fiction and documentary to follow the fate of numerous characters over the course of several years, her trilogy carries the amplitude of a Victorian three-decker novel: Her 1,000 pages are filled with Dickensian characteristics, as well as elements from the Yiddish masters: Sholom Aleichem, I. L. Peretz and Mendele Mocher Seforim. . . . The University of Wisconsin Press is to be congratulated for publishing this monumental tribute." -- Michael Greenstein, in the Toronto Globe and Mail
