Mouth of Truth is the unique story of a woman trapped in the vault of family secrets, part of her still a hidden child, some 40 years after the Second World War. Following a crisis, she leaves her home and children in search of the truth about her beloved father, a Jewish policeman in the Warsaw Ghetto. The story reveals how unhealed childhood trauma of a parent can be transmitted from one generation to the next, destroying families and other relationships in its wake.

"Mouth of Truth represents an important contribution to the field and engages -- with such eloquence, insight and sensitivity -- with timely questions related to Holocaust memory, the transmission of trauma across generations, and the complexity of roles and responsibilities in a moral universe upended. Mouth of Truth would be a compelling candidate for the reading lists of universities and colleges with courses on Holocaust history and literature, the psychology of genocide." --Nina Krieger | Executive Director, Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre "Mouth of Truth is a work of great insight and fine delicacy about the human condition, all the while paying particular attention to how men and women and children deal with the trauma of suffering, dislocation, and death." --John Colombo, Author
