THE GHOST TATTOO

To the outside world, Henry Bernard was a hard-working and beloved family doctor on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Yet he was also a Holocaust survivor whose life was profoundly affected by the experiences of his past.

The Ghost Tattoo is the story of how Tony Bernard, Henry's eldest son, went on a forty-year journey with his father to solve the mystery of why Henry was the way he was, and how he finally came to understand the desperate choices Henry had made in the ghetto to try to keep himself and his family alive.

ALL MIXED UP

Candid and heartfelt, Jason Om writes a compelling memoir about trauma, identity and acceptance. It's also an uplifting celebration of authenticity, difference, resilience, hope and love by an exciting new Australian voice.

RED CROSS ROSE

Sandra Venn-Brown tells us about an Aussie civilian in France 1916-1920, her aunt Rose Mary Venn-Brown. Rose served in the First World War as an administrator with the British and the Australian Red Cross and the YMCA.

She was the only woman to do so and, although she was not the only civilian Australian woman to serve in France, she was the last to leave in 1919. She did not proclaim herself a feminist or social reformer, but her work changed the lives of the men she served, and she played her part in the changing role of women in our world.

This is her remarkable story - a story which gives a new insight into life on the battlefields during the Great War.
