Of the 250,000 men, women and children that lived in the ghetto from 1941-1944, less than 5,000 survived.In a time of terror, ordinary men and women dared to try and live their lives, dared to love, dared to hope.

I hope my novel honors my parents and all survivors and victims of the Holocaust and genocide, past, present and future. Written by the son of Holocaust survivors, award winning author, Mark H. Newhouse, The Devil's Bookkeepers is a novel of love, friendship, and courage, that follows the timeline of the tightening of the Nazi noose that took place in the Lodz Ghetto in Poland, beginning in 1941, as described in the Chronicle of the Lodz Ghetto, edited by Lucjan Dobroszycki, (Yale University Press, 1984).
