Navigating between the two worlds of wartime experiences in Europe and new life in Australia, this moving memoir of a Holocaust survivor is imbued with an element of fiction. This deeply personal narrative travels from darkness to hope as the author loses his family at Auschwitz, spends the war in concentration camps, and ultimately emigrates to Australia with his wife, leading to an eventual restoration that remains colored by a tragic past.

Sunrise West navigates between two worlds: the author's wartime and postwar experiences in Europe, and his new life in Australia. Like his highly acclaimed memoir, East of Time, to which this book forms a sequel, it is a weave of autobiography, history and imagination, rich in ideas and peopled with an array of memorable characters. Whether describing the momentous or the mundane, Jacob Rosenberg writes with passion, irony and dark humour - and above all, a compelling zest for life.
