Part memoir, part detective story, part family history, this is the account of one family's quest for answers; a timely investigation of Poland's attempts to obscure its entanglement in the Holocaust, and a poignant portrait of those who nevertheless remember...

A riveting debut
by the former
Boston Globe journalist.


About the Author

Judy Rakowsky is a career journalist who spent decades covering legal affairs for The Boston Globe and The Providence Journal. She was embedded in federal courthouses for years at a time, covering major trials and producing countless page one stories. She mastered complex issues and the chess game of litigation and the media.


After an award-winning reporting career, she advanced to editing positions on the Globe’s metropolitan desk, where she sized up and shepherded stories to page one. She went on to cover high-profile crime and human interest stories for People Magazine, gaining insights into major national media.

After decades in the field, she took on her most challenging, enraging and eye-opening assignment yet – write about her own family's story of the Holocaust.
