"Jews in the Garden reads like the best of narrator-guided murder-mysteries. But in this case the who-done-it is real, chilling, and makes clear why today's Polish government is so determined to keep its bloody Holocaust-era secrets." ―Larry Tye, New York Times bestselling author

To honor the November 9 anniversary of Kristallnacht, FJC is hosting journalist and author Judy Rakowsky in a talk about her book Jews in the Garden, a gripping story of untold World War II secrets.

Jews in the Garden is a globe-trotting detective story that turns investigative eyes and ears toward the hidden events in Poland during the Holocaust. Investigative journalist Judy Rakowsky and her elderly cousin Sam, the unlikeliest of sleuthing duos, knock on doors, petition court documents, seek clandestine meetings, and ultimately discover what really happened to the “Jews in the garden next door.”

Judy Rakowsky is an award-win­ning jour­nal­ist whose career of enter­prise report­ing for The Boston Globe, The Prov­i­dence Jour­nal and Peo­ple Mag­a­zine often led cov­er­age on the major sto­ries of the times from orga­nized crime, priest sex to online bul­ly­ing of teens in the 2000s. She has gar­nered awards for fea­ture writ­ing, sen­si­tiv­i­ty to crime vic­tims, enter­prise report­ing, and domes­tic vio­lence.
