Jack and Rochelle: A Holocaust Story of Love and Resistance
“A story of heroism and of touching romance in a time of fear and danger.” ―USA Today
The memoir of a man and woman who escaped into the forest, joined the Jewish partisans—and fell in love—as Hitler laid waste to their Polish hometowns.
There are two voices intertwined in the narrative: those of Jack and Rochelle. Now and then they interrupt each other. This is the way they have told these stories for the past fifty years: side by side, listening intently each to the other, at the ready to speak up lest a single detail be lost. These stories are their lives―the testament of their survival and their love for each other. ―from the Preface by Lawrence Sutin
