AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In telling her mother's story, Susan Varga also tells her own. As a tiny baby she barely survived the holocaust, in hiding in a Hungarian village with her sister and mother, Heddy. Neither pain nor the devastation of this time lessened Heddy's will to go on to recreate her life in Australia. (Book cover)
