Letter From My Father is a powerful story of a young child’s struggle to survive the loss of her parents, her name and identity.
Dasia Black tells of her life’s journey from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Poland to Stuttgart in liberated Germany, then to her teenage and adult years in Australia. A letter from her lost father, a message of hop for his daughter written from the abyss of destruction, provides the resilience she needs to move beyond bereavement and displacement to a purposeful life.
“Dasia’s book powerfully communicated her experience of devastating events, starting with the Holocaust, and showing how each in turn and all of them cumulatively affected her. Her ability to continue seeking and finding ways to heal, to each time rebuild her shattered world, a world that is changes but not destroyed, is inspiring.”
