Eva Figes and her family fled the horror of Nazi Germany when Eva was only six, forced to leave behind them friends, relatives and their housemaid, Edith. Ten years later, Edith suddenly re-enters their lives. Having miraculously survived wartime Berlin, she had reluctantly emigrated to hostile, volatile Palestine. Recounting Edith's story, Figes boldly argues that Israel was a product of US foreign policy and continuing and widespread anti-Semitism. Part memoir, part brave polemic, Journey to Nowhere is both a moving account of post-war displacement and a fierce attack on America's role in the Middle East.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Fusing history and memoir, Eva Figes's polemical account of the creation of Israel is bewitchingly told - [a] luminously personal chronicle' Sunday Times 'A brave book. It is Figes's status as a victim of persecution that gives her the courage and authority to condemn Israel's treatment of the Palestinians' - Observer 'An impassioned memoir and an inspired polemic' - Scotland on Sunday 'Eva Figes is essentially a novelist, one whose characteristic clarity makes her tales both engaging and piquant - unforgettable and profound' - Scotsman 'Figes is unflinching in her discussion of Israel and America - Her judgement on the occupation is spot on' - Guardian
