Memoir of a child survivor of the Holocaust

Dita Gould was born in Vienna and survived the Holocaust as a child. She migrated to Australia with her family

Although she had written of her experiences previously, this is Dita’s first full-length memoir, beginning with the story of how, separated from her parents, she survived the Holocaust during the Second World War, in a world of hunger and isolation, by hiding with her sister in a most unlikely place—SS headquarters in Budapest. 

Dita was less then eleven years old when she was forced into hiding with her sister who was six and a half years old. She was brave, resilient and courageous. These qualities have continued throughout her life.

We follow Dita’s story as she recalls her family’s migration to Australia after the war, and we hear her passion in her roles as wife, mother, business owner, grandmother, and more. 

In Australia Dita met her first husband and married. They had three children together, all boys. They lived in Melbourne and liked to travel.

One unique feature of this story is her development of the well-known art gallery Gould Galleries, located in Melbourne, where she sold the works of famous Australian artists. 

This book is about the many ups and downs that a migrant goes through when living in a new country. Its about war and its atrocities. But it is also about family life and living as a married person, sharing day to day challenges.

Hybrid Publishers 2020, paperback
