Read full description of the books Far Above Rubies:
Far Above Rubies is based on the authentic story of Tante Soof, a Dutch Jew who at a late age marries into a family with six stepdaughters. When the occupation comes in 1941 and Hitler orders all Jewish teenagers to be sent to work camps, Soof (or Sofie) refuses to let her daughters be sent away on their own, and insists on accompanying them to the work camp they are sent to. Once there she does her best to keep up their spirits and health – often going without herself, in order to give them a bit more water or food. Unfortunately she can only do so much, and when they are sent to Auschwitz it is all she can do to keep herself alive.
I hope this book will eventually become as well-known as "The Hiding Place" and "The Diary of Anne Frank" when describing the lives of Dutch Jews during World War Two. It paints a vivid picture of their daily lives, and of the atrocities performed by the German soldiers. An amazing book. Do go out and read it!
