New Release Recounts Young Jewish Couple’s Harrowing Ordeals in Poland and Russia During the Holocaust; Dog Ear Publishing Releases Book by Kalman Kivkovich

Cincinnati, OH, March 13, 2011 --( Fryda and Natek, two young Polish Jews, met and fell in love at a sports resort in 1938. Their plans for marriage and family-building were postponed as Hitler began to systematically overtake Eastern Europe, crushing the Jewish population in his wake. Fearful for their future, the couple fled their troubled country and crossed the border into Russia, only to find themselves imprisoned by the very people they hoped would assist them. The next few years were a nightmare of impossibly difficult labor, horrific living conditions, and, worst of all, separation.

Natek and his brother, Berek, found themselves shuttled from work camp to work camp, with freedom dangled before them only to have it snatched cruelly away. Fryda was separated from her fiancée and forced to participate in manual labor of the sort she’d never experienced, unsure if she’d ever see her beloved Natek again. When the couple finally regained their precious freedom, they faced a new challenge: how would they be reunited? What would they find if and when they went home? Was there a home to which they could return?

In the Vise of Evils is by turns heartbreaking and horrifying, mind-blowing and moving. The terrible trials of this young couple are unbelievable, and their strength of character is an inspiration to every reader. Author Kalman Kivkovich is a retired architect, artist, and playwright. He is active in the Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative, and was elected president of CPI in May 2010. He and his wife, Sandi, are avid ballroom dancers, and they make their home in Cincinnati.
