Saskia Goldschmidt

Saskia Goldschmidt (Amsterdam, 1954) worked as a youth theatre producer and trainer of hospital staff and debuted in 2009 with Verplicht gelukkig (Compulsory Happiness), an autobiographical non-fiction book about growing up in the shadow of the Holocaust. The success of her debut and the discovery of documents about the rise of the pharmaceutical giant Organon (producers of the contraceptive pill), prompted her to write this novel.
