Black Rose and African Violets is a true story portrayed through the eyes of a child growing up in post-war Britain. Over the years, Anna discovers the ordeals her mother suffered during the horrors of World War Two: her capture and imprisonment in two of the Nazis' most notorious concentration camps, her escape and recapture, and her subsequent internment in the Soviet Gulag. Rescued by General Anders' Army, Anna's mother travels through Siberia and Iran before reaching Africa and, eventually, England, where she served out the war under British command. Having lost her family, her identity and her country, with no hope of returning, this is a story of trauma, sadness, hope and resilience. Memories can be lost, misunderstood and fade over time. Those with direct recollections of the painful events of the Second World War are no longer with us. It is, therefore, all the more important that such memories are preserved if we are to learn the hard lessons from the past.
