Some brief overview of this book

Heda Margolius Kovalys steady gaze at the lives caught up in Czechoslovakias tragic fate under the Nazis and then during the Stalin era illuminates the chaotic life of a nation. Kovaly was deported to concentration camps, escaped from a death march, nearly starved in the postwar years, only to be shattered by her husbands conviction (in the infamous 1952 Slansky trial) and his execution. Resonant with lyricism, this gripping memoir is uplifting even in the midst of horror.

After living in Massachusetts and working at the Harvard Law School Library for several years, she returned to Prague where she now lives.
