In 1933, high school sweethearts Yanosh and Eva carved their names on a tree and dreamed of a better world. Now, as they emerge from hiding into the rubble of what was Warsaw, they must confront the destruction of everyone and everything they knew and loved – except each other. For them, nurturing a new life means rejecting ideologies and journeying to a faraway land. On their way, they meet and are helped by Bora, a Zionist partisan, whose war will not end until he makes sure justice is done to those who murdered the Jews.
Yehiel Grenimann describes the revival of Jewish life in the refugee Displaced Persons DP camps of central Europe through telling Yanosh and Eva’s story. With sensitive prose, the author captures the courage and tenderness of their relationship as these young survivors overcome challenges, marry and journey toward hope and healing.
