“Heda Margolius Kovály was a well-known writer and translator who survived the Auschwitz extermination camp and whose first husband, Rudolf Margolius, the deputy minister for foreign trade, was found guilty in the notorious Slánský show trial in what is one of the darkest chapters in Czechoslovak history. Kovály’s oral history should be required reading for anyone learning about the Holocaust and crimes committed by Czechoslovakia’s communist regime. It also oﬀers a glimpse into Czechoslovakia’s First Republic. Her descriptions are unforgettable.” – Jan Velinger, Radio Prague
