THE NINE

 

Nine women. One powerful story of friendship and resistance.

The Nine follows the true story of the author’s great aunt Hélène Podliasky, who led a band of nine female resistance fighters as they escaped a German forced labor camp and made a ten-day journey across the front lines of WWII from Germany back to Paris.

A compelling, beautifully written story of resilience, friendship and survival. The story of Women’s resistance during World War II needs to be told and The Nine accomplishes this in spades.” ―Heather Morris, author of Cilka’s Journey

“The Nine is poignant, powerful, and shattering, distilling the horror of the Holocaust through the lens of nine unforgettable women.” —Kate Quinn,  author of The Rose Code

“It’s a most inspiring read . . . Utterly gripping.” —Anne Sebba, author of Les Parisiennes  

“Beauty, grace, horror, and suspense—an important work that also happens to be a hell of a read!” —Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead

“In writing of rare historical accuracy and deep empathy, a woman of today tells the stories of yesterday.” —Agnès Triebel, Secretary-General of the International Buchenwald-Dora Committee
