My book will be launched in the same month we will add a lasting memory of my relatives who died in the Holocaust.

September will be an eventful month for me.

Do you know about Stolpersteine? There are little gold colour tiles with names put in the pavements in front of the houses where the  victims of the Holocaust last lived and were free before deportation. I think it is a wonderful idea, and it is so good that it was a German artist that came up with it.

So in September, the names of my grandfather, grandmother, my mother and her brother will be on the Stolperstein tiles in front of the house in Prague on the embankment of river Vltava, where they last lived.

There is going to be a ceremony. My grandmother and mother survived, my grandfather and uncle were killed.

In my novel, there are lots of real family stories, fictionalised. Theirs, too.

So I am pleased that the ceremony will be at the same time as the publication of my novel, dedicated to the ones who didn’t come back.

We will walk over the Charles Bridge , the one on the cover of my novel. And I will be thinking: ” Would they like what I wrote? I hope so.
