Dita Gould was an eleven-year old child when the Nazis invaded Hungary in 1944 and overturned her peaceful family life. Separated from her parents and responsible for her little sister, she suffered deprivations and nearly starved, but survived with indomitable spirit and courage. Reunited with her parents after the war, she migrated with her family to Australia, where her father was able to start a new business and settle to create a successful life.
In her first full-length book, written in her late 80s, Dita has shared her remarkable life journey, documenting a period of history that should never be forgotten.
