Beschrijving

This poignant story follows the agonizing trials and tribulations of a vulnerable young girl's journey into adulthood. The best years of her life turn into the darkest of nightmares. The year is 1940. The place is Amsterdam, Holland. The Nazis conquer Europe and are intent on wiping out all of its Jews. We follow Sonja Kiek Rosenstein Cohen who, born into a warm and loving family, is forced to come to grips with suffering so great, that it was all but impossible not to succumb.

At the age of 21 Sonja lost her family, her newly wedded husband and most of her relatives. Her story and survival are set against the socio-political canvas of the times. It is an avid testimony to a period in recent history that did take place and should serve as a warning for generations to come.

Please note: this is an English audiobook. There also is a Dutch-language version with the title En verder geen leed.

Born and raised in Holland, Liliane Pelzman (1953) lived in England, Israel and now in Southern California, where she appreciates a sense of freedom different from anywhere in the world. Her home in California is a sanctuary from painful memories. With an undergraduate degree from Tel Aviv University and a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Southern California, Liliane was member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Corps, working as a television and print journalist for 15 years. She has also written several screenplays.

Liliane is the daughter of Sonja Kiek Rosenstein Cohen, a Jewish woman who lost everthing she had in WW2. She had exstensive conversations with her mother about the war. This resulted in the impressive story And No More Sorrow (En verder geen leed), published in April 2006.
