            When I first sat down with Nanna Mindla and asked how she survived the Holocaust, she shooed me away. 'Why do you care?' she asked. By that time she was in a Melbourne Jewish nursing home with other survivors, her body ageing but mind still razor sharp. 'What about her?' she said..., pointing a freshly painted purple nail towards the woman having soup opposite. 'Or her, or her.' Arms waving around. 'All the same.' As death began approaching I became a little more pushy. I knew her story had to be recorded and we were running out of time. Each week I'd bring cake from her favourite shop in St Kilda, a bottle of the brightest nail polish I could find, a handful of old pictures and my tape recorder. We'd chat and with each 'chat' her story unfolded. It was beyond anything I could imagine. The story of how Mindla and her husband Michael Horowitz, a circus performer for the famous Staniewski Brothers, escaped from Poland with their son and embarked on a terrifying journey across Russia, is nothing short of extraordinary. Written by award-winning author and journalist Sue Smethurst, whose husband is Mindla and Michael's grandson, The Freedom Circus is an epic tale of courage, love, hope, humanity, suffering and, ultimately, survival.
