GHETTO OF HELL

By Stuart Haywood

The Bechowicz family were no different from thousands of other families in Warsaw during the early part of the nineteen forties. But the fact that they were Jewish condemned them to a fate only firsthand experience could even begin to comprehend. The Nazi war machine systematically decreased the Jewish sector known as ‘The Warsaw Ghetto’, through murder, deportation and unthinkable horrors, to achieve ‘The Final Solution’ Jan Bechowicz tries desperately to keep his family together, and out of harm’s way. The uprising begins in April 1943. Jan unwittingly becomes a key figure in the desperate struggle to stay alive, and one step ahead of the SS. A British Captain joins the courageous resistance group with the blessing of Winston Churchill, to aid the fighters and send back intelligence to London. This is a story of survival against overwhelming odds portraying the outstanding bravery and unselfish actions of the Jewish resistance fighters.

I was born in Derbyshire, in the heart of England in 1953. My father was a coal miner, and my mother worked at several jobs to give my brother and myself a wonderful and secure upbringing. My affinity for all things artistic began at a very early age, I was sketching and painting in infants school and found I could get a tune out of most musical instruments by the age of 10. At sixteen I toured with a band, and music dominated my life from then onward. A vivid imagination and the aptitude for story telling led me to write my first novel in the nineteen seventies. I wrote several short stories after that, none that were published as I wrote them for pleasure only. However in 2007 and getting too old for gigging, I decided to rewrite the novel. Zoo was a concept that had been with me for over thirty years. Sadly my partner died in 2011 and my love of art took a plunge. Eventually I began to write again and found it was helping me through my grief. So far, as of June 2014, I have written four novels and one non fiction book. This book is about Bolsover, the town I grew up in. I enjoyed the research and diversion it provided whilst finding my 'new normal' after being alone. I try to write so that the reader can relate and empathise with the characters. They are simple, untwisting plots which I am told flow easily. I sincerely hope you enjoy my work. I thank you for taking the time to read this little insight.
