SPECIAL EVENT - Discovering “The other side of absence" Big Bookclub

Thursday, 26 May, 2022

Betty O’Neill grew up knowing very little about her father Antoni. She knew that he had fled Poland in WWII and that he had disappeared one night when she was a baby. Fifty-five years after he deserted her family, Betty becomes determined to solve the mystery of her absent father. Betty’s search takes her to Poland, sifting through photos, letters and other clues from her father’s life. She puts together a more complete picture of Antoni: Polish resistance fighter, a Catholic political prisoner, survivor of Auschwitz and Gusen concentration camps, an exile in post-war England, and a migrant to Australia. Honest and compelling, The Other Side of Absence has elements of a cold case detective story. Borrow the book today and join us for a night of lively chat and discovery. Books for sale and signing on the night.
