JEWS IN THE GARDEN A Holocaust Survivor, the Fate of His Family, and the Secret History of Poland in World War II

by | Read by Judy Rakowsky

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Judy Rakowsky recounts her thirty-year search for her long-lost relative, Hena, the only survivor of a family that was killed one night in Poland near the end of WWII. Investigative journalist Rakowsky has the perfect skills to follow her older cousin, Sam, a Holocaust survivor, on this journey. Rakowsky candidly expresses her frustration with waiting for translations, Sam's occasional dismissals of her inquiries, and false leads--all of which led to endless attempts to find Hena. While unsuccessful at the intended task, Rakowsky uncovers and trumpets a truth denied in Poland: that many Jews were murdered not by Nazis, but by Polish resistance fighters. Her voice is vehement when revealing that surprising truth and the stigmas that continue. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
