Malka Adler was born in a small village near the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel.
She began her work as an author when she turned 50. After taking a creative writing course, she fell in love with the art.
Malka has written six books, four of which are about the Holocaust. She obtained her undergraduate and graduate degrees in educational counselling at Bar Ilan University and is a family and couples' therapist, writer and facilitator of several reading clubs.
I don't think I was prepared for how many emotions this book would put me through. Naturally it's upsetting but as the story unfolds there are parts where its comforting in terms of human kindness and families finding each other after everything... There's even the cheeky moments of Yitzkhak and Dov in their youth put a smile on my face
It was not an easy read but even harder to put down. I can't say if I will ready any more Aushwitz books but I am glad this one found me
