About the Book

Still the Night is a celebration of survival—the story of two young women who were separated from their parents during the Second World War and wander through Poland pretending not to be Jewish. Theresa Tova has fashioned from true stories a moving, heart-rending, and uplifting drama of survival against all odds and punctuated it with songs from the Holocaust era.


“Compelling and illuminating.”

“Theresa Tova is an artist Canadians should celebrate.”
—Toronto Star
