About this audiobook

In this gripping memoir, Jack and Rochelle Sutin recount their experiences as Jewish resistance fighters during World War II, a story that ranges from extreme horror to poignant triumph. Told through their son Lawrence, the book brings alive the reality of months spent hidden in a dank underground bunker infested with lice and disease. Jack and Rochelle is more than just an account of stark survival, however. It is also the tale of an almost impossible love affair that has lasted over fifty years, and an eloquent reminder that history is made up of the often deeply moving details of individual lives.

Editor's Note

Enduring love…

After a brief, awkward meeting years before, fate brought Jack and Rochelle together during the height of World War II. They had fled their homes in Poland after witnessing atrocities against their families and neighbors. Together, as they fell in love, Jack and Rochelle joined the resistance against Hitler as Jewish partisans. “Jack and Rochelle” is more than a memoir, offering readers a moving story of enduring love and strength in the face of unspeakable evil.

JACK AND ROCHELLE SUTIN met in the woods of Poland as Jewish resistance fighters during the Holocaust.

Rochelle Sutin died in 2010.
