A powerful story of hope, love, and imagination, set against the horrific backdrop of the Holocaust. Two Jewish girls, Julia and Suzanne, are captured in Nazi-occupied Netherlands and transported to a ghetto. Although their world views are wildly different - Julia is jaded and bitter, Suzanne naive and optimistic - they become each other's closest confidants as they experience the horrors of the journey to `The Paradise Ghetto'. The young women use a precious smuggled notebook to write a story. As the book unfolds, it becomes the way they communicate their growing feelings for each other. But there comes a point when reality can no longer be held at bay. If the girls' names end up on the lists of deportees to Auschwitz there will be no return. Is there a chance of escaping fate?

Reviews

As much as The Paradise Ghetto is about the Holocaust, it is also a story about writing: the power of immersing oneself into the act, and the haven it provides, even in the most hellish places on earth ... This novel takes the Holocaust experience from victim to creator, to the degree possible under those oppressive circumstances. This inspiring message is one I greatly appreciate. * The Jerusalem Post *
