From the author of the multi-million copy bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz comes a new novel based on a riveting true story of love and resilience. Her beauty saved her — and condemned her. Cilka is just sixteen years old when she is taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp in 1942, where the commandant immediately notices how beautiful she is. Forcibly separated from the other women prisoners, Cilka learns quickly that power, even unwillingly taken, equals survival. When the war is over and the camp is liberated, freedom is not granted to Cilka: She is charged as a collaborator for sleeping with the enemy and sent to a Siberian prison camp. But did she really have a choice? And where do the lines of morality lie for Cilka, who was send to Auschwitz when she was still a child? In Siberia, Cilka faces challenges both new and horribly familiar, including the unwanted attention of the guards. But when she meets a kind female doctor, Cilka is taken under her wing and begins to tend to the ill in the camp, struggling to care for them under brutal conditions. Confronting death and terror daily, Cilka discovers a strength she never knew she had. And when she begins to tentatively form bonds and relationships in this harsh, new reality, Cilka finds that despite everything that has happened to her, there is room in her heart for love. From child to woman, from woman to healer, Cilka's journey illuminates the resilience of the human spirit—and the will we have to survive.

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER 'The ultimate Holocaust testimony.' HEATHER MORRIS, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka's Journey Afterword by JOHN BOYNE, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas _______________ Eddy de Wind, a Dutch doctor and psychiatrist, was shipped to Auschwitz with his wife Friedel, whom he had met and married at the Westerbork labour camp in the Netherlands. At Auschwitz, they made it through the brutal selection process and were put to work. Each day, each hour became a battle for survival. For Eddy, this meant negotiating with the volatile guards in the medical barracks. For Friedel, it meant avoiding the Nazis' barbaric medical experiments. As the end of the war approached and the Russian Army drew closer, the last Nazis fled, taking many prisoners with them, including Friedel. Eddy hid under a pile of old clothes and stayed behind. Finding a notebook and pencil, he began to write with furious energy about his experiences. Last Stop Auschwitz is an extraordinary account of life as a prisoner, a near real-time record of the daily struggle to survive but also of the flickering moments of joy Eddy and Friedel found in each other. Documenting the best and the worst of humanity, it is a unique and timeless story that reminds us of what we as humans are capable of, but that there is hope, even in Hell. _______________ WHAT READERS ARE SAYING: 'It's heart-wrenching, but there are pockets of resistance, rays of hope that shine through.' 'Powerful and ultimately uplifting... with courage and strength you can survive anything.' 'This is an important work. We must never forget.'

Author: D M Mitchell
Polish boy Jozef could not know that the coming of the Russians would mean him losing everything he holds dear: his family, his freedom, his country. Surviving imprisonment, starvation and disease, suddenly hope and salvation - for him and six others - is at hand. Yet to reach it the party must undertake a perilous journey across two thousand kilometres of Siberian wilderness.Partly inspired by the author's late father's and grandparents' real-life experiences, this fictional story centres on a relatively unreported and unexplored period during the Second World War, when Russia invaded and annexed eastern Poland, forcibly 'resettling' over a million civilians and subjecting them to brutal conditions in gulags in Siberia and elsewhere.The cruel consequences of war and Poland's ruthless occupation by Russia are seen through the eyes of twelve-year-old Jozef Domrowski. It's Sept 1939. Germany has invaded Poland. Jozef lives on a farm in the east of the country until the Russians invade and remove Jozef and his family to a labour camp in northern Siberia. Here he must face cruelty, hardships and loss beyond anything he has experienced before. Eventually freed, Jozef and his friends find themselves abandoned. Jozef must now lead his seven-strong band of youngsters across the vast wilderness of Siberia two thousand kilometres south to safety and the newly formed Polish army in Totskoye. The novel is a physical and emotional journey of personal discovery, of sorrow and hope, during which Jozef will grow from naïve farm boy to young man, encountering the angels and the demons of war and exposing those at odds within him.Seven Seeds of the Sunflower is D. M. Mitchell at his historical best, moving away from his trademark thriller, and is in the tradition of Vanessa Curtis' The Earth is Singing or, more recently, that of Heather Morris' bestselling Cilka's Journey. It is an epic tale of hope and the resilience of the human spirit.

The five million copy bestseller and one of the bestselling books of the 21st Century. Chosen for the Richard and Judy Bookclub. I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart. In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale - a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did, too. So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.
