Jack and Rochelle

(1996)
A non fiction book by

 
 
In this gripping and heartfelt memoir, Jack and Rochelle Sutin recount how they fell in love during the height of World War II in the dense forests of Poland.

Though they grew up in the same village, Jack and Rochelle only knew each other at a distance, having once shared a clumsy school dance. After the Nazi occupation, they were torn from their families and forced to live in labour camps. Each managed a daring escape into the surrounding woods, where they happened upon each other and, along with thousands of other Jews, joined the Polish underground Resistance.

Jack and Rochelle's poignant shared narrative reveals the extreme conditions they endured while living for years in an underground bunker in the woods, and the impossible love affair that grew out of it and lasted over fifty years. More than an account of stark survival, this is an inspirational story of courage, resilience, and, above all, true love.

'Captures the horror of the Holocaust without missing the central characters' strength, courage, and passion.' - USA Today

'A powerful and illuminating personal account . . . Faithful inclusiveness, combined with a depth of feeling never minimised and never paraded, makes this strong, honest, affecting book a valuable addition to Holocaust literature.' - New York Times Book Review
