9780140237672: Heddy and Me

"Heddy and Me" spans the twentieth century and some of its great upheavals: war, the Holocaust, immigration.

In telling her mother's story Susan Varga also tells her own. As a tiny baby she barely survived the Holocaust, in hiding in a Hungarian village with her sister and her mother, Heddy. Neither pain or the devastation of this time lessened Heddy's will to go on and recreate her life in Australia.
