Description - Conversations with Regina by Andrew Zielinski
The merger of past and present reveals the ties between war-torn Europe and post-war Australia. At the centre stands a family story depicting the horrors of the Holocaust in Nazi-occupied Poland. Incarceration in, and then escape from a Sobibor death camp is followed by survival underground, liberation and the endeavour to re-establish normal life. In Conversations with Regina the author Andrew Zielinski embarks on a journey to discover the history of his parents, and in doing so, discovers his own identity. 'Among the ever-increasing flood of Holocaust testimonies, Conversations with Regina stands out. It is an intriguing account in which history and memory are intertwined.' - Professor Konrad Kwiet, Emeritus Professor of German Studies, Macquarie Univeristy, and resident historian, Sydney Jewish Museum
