Bitter Herbs: Based on a true story of a Jewish girl in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands by Marga Minco

When the Nazis invade the Netherlands in May 1940 it’s clear that life is changing for the girl and her family. Step by step, the Nazis close in on the Dutch Jews. But when the authorities finally come to the family home a split decision will have devastating consequences.

Marga Minco’s autobiographical novel Bitter Herbs is a Dutch classic that has been translated into more than fifteen languages. This deceptively simple and profoundly moving tale is now reissued with a new translation by Jeannette K Ringold.

Year first published: 2020
