2nd Edition of the critically acclaimed WWII historical fiction novel "The Paradise Ghetto" by Fergus O'Connell is published

About the Book:

This is an incredibly moving story about the enduring love & bond between two young women deported to a German concentration camp.

In 1944 two young Dutch women, Julia and Suzanne, are both sent to the German concentration camp for so-called privileged Jews at Theresienstadt. As an antidote to their appalling conditions, they begin to write a novel. At first, their novel is just an escape an imaginary world into which they can withdraw and find comfort but as their story unfolds, it becomes the way they communicate their feelings to each other and, ultimately, confront their own demons. They become convinced that the war will end when they finish their story, but it is the frenzied last year of the Final Solution.

As the darkness gathers around them, they find themselves in a race not just to finish the novel but to find a means of survival. The Paradise Ghetto is the story of two people whose lives are drawn together in unimaginable circumstances, and a reflection on the part that books play in our lives.
