Sister Sister

This is the story of two sisters whose lives span the busy marketplaces of   pre-war Krakow, Poland, the horror of the Holocaust, the haven of Schindler's factory and the apparent peace and safety of a suburban backyard in Melbourne, Australia. Their extraordinary life stories are interwoven with the memories of their daughter and niece. Through the recollections and dreams of these voices we learn of worlds and people forever lost, of shattered hopes, of the fragility of survival, and of the power of the human spirit.


Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler’s Ark, wrote: “Sister, Sister is the vivid and intimate tale of two personable sisters who survive the great European catastrophe … In celebrating these two vigorously human sisters, the author does eloquent honour to all the lost sisters of history. Many will cherish the book.”
