About the Author
Elise Garibaldi, an Amazon Best-Selling author, playwright, and songwriter, knew from the time she first began hearing her grandmother’s story, how important is was to preserve it for future generations. With that in mind- Inge’s tribulations and her refusal to allow what she endured to dominate her life for the rest of her days- Elise Garibaldi became determined to ensure that what her grandmother had experienced would not be forgotten.
While many Holocaust accounts are either strictly historical, or else read like fiction, Elise Garibaldi has fused the two writing styles to present Roses in a Forbidden Garden in a way that is both historically accurate and a page-turner. The reader is given the rare opportunity to see through Inge’s eyes, to feel through her touch, and to experience pangs of both heartache and joy just as she had on numerous occasions between the ages of 13 and 22. The author provides this moving approach to involve those who were not there with a semblance of what it was like to be a victim of Hitler’s gruesome Final Solution; not only physically, but socially, emotionally, and physiologically as well.
