"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.
