about

The third volume in this powerful trilogy, The Cattle Cars Are Waiting follows the tragic fate of the inhabitants of the ghetto. Chava Rosenfarb, herself a survivor of the Lodz Ghetto, Auschwitz, and Bergen-Belsen, draws on her own history to create characters who struggle daily to retain a sense of humanity and dignity despite the physical and psychological effects of ghetto life. Although the novel depicts horrendous experiences, the light of faith in the human spirit shines through every page.

Winner, Georges Bugnet Award for Best Novel, Writers Guild of Alberta

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

Editorial Reviews

"Defiant, she [Rosenfarb] insists on finding humanity in privation, and keeping alive a creative spark, no matter how many tears are shed on it. . . . Meticulous in her rendering of daily life."—Montreal Gazette
