Synopsis

From the busy marketplaces of pre-war Krakow, Poland, to the horror of the Holocaust and the haven of Schindler's factory, to the apparent peace and safety of a suburban backyard in Melbourne, Australia, this is the story of two sisters who miraculously survived. Their extraordinary life stories are interwoven with the childhood and later memories of the narrator, Anna, daughter and niece of the two sisters, Hela and Janka. Through the recollections and dreams of these three voices we learn of worlds and people forever lost, of shattered hopes, of the fragility of survival, and of the power of the human spirit. 'Sister Sister' was shortlisted for the Age Book of the Year Award and the New South Wales Premiers Award in 1998.

    Sister, sister

    An extraordinary telling of the Holocaust by the daughter of one of the sisters. There are sad and horrifying experiences endured by the sisters however they settle in Australia happily. Well written and interesting.
