The Paradise Ghetto

A powerful story of betrayal, love, and imagination set against the horrific backdrop of the Second World War. Julia and Suzanne, two Jewish girls from the Netherlands, are rounded up by the Nazis and transported to the ghetto of Theresienstadt. 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 girls use a precious smuggled notebook to write a story, each contributing to an alternate reality that takes them away from the horrors of their daily lives, but there soon comes a point when reality can no longer be held at bay. People are being deported to Auschwitz, and if the girls' names end up on the lists of deportees there will be no return. Is there a chance of escaping that fate - and at what cost?

About the Author

Fergus O'Connell is a world-renowned business management expert who has lectured at a number of universities across the world. His non-fiction title, Simply Brilliant, was runner-up in the WH Smith Book Awards 2002, and his debut novel Call the Swallow was shortlisted for the 2002 Irish Fiction Prize and nominated for the Sunday Independent Novel of the Year.


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 *
