Description

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.

2 reviews for Far Away from Where?

  1. “Based both on a reading of history and on family experience, this novel presents in compelling form the lives of people who suffer through the Holocaust and then find a way to keep going in the face of national and personal tragedy.”

    Dr. Yisrael Cohen, co-editor (1990-2007) of “Jews in Russia and Eastern Europe” of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

  2. Incredible story, combining Holocaust romance as the need for life to go on despite the horrors of the Germans. As a semi-unique benefit, adds the concept of post-Holocaust revenge/justice to the romance.Book is great but overpriced not as related to outstanding quality but relative to other author’s works.
