Jack and Rochelle: A Holocaust Story of Love and Resistance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A story of heroism and of touching romance in a time of fear and danger.” —USA Today

There are two voices intertwined in the narrative: those of Jack and Rochelle. Now and then they interrupt each other. This is the way they have told these stories for the past fifty years: side by side, listening intently each to the other, at the ready to speak up lest a single detail be lost. These stories are their lives—the testament of their survival and their love for each other. —from the Preface by Lawrence Sutin

 
In this gripping memoir, Jack and Rochelle Sutin recount their struggle to survive the Holocaust as part of a band of partisans in the forests of Poland. Told through their son Lawrence, the book brings alive the reality of months spent hidden in a dank underground bunker unaware of the outside world. Jack and Rochelle is more than just an account of stark survival, however. It is also the tale of an almost impossible love affair that has lasted more than fifty years, and an eloquent reminder that history is made up of the often deeply moving details of individual lives.

About the Author

Jack and Rochelle Sutin have been married for more than fifty years. They have lived in Minnesota since 1949. Lawrence Sutin is the author of A Postcard Memoir and All Is Change: The Two-Thousand-Year Journey of Buddhism to the West.
