About the Book
In this historical novel set in Poland during the late 1960s, Ryszard Mirwski, Jewish underclassman at Warsaw University, gets caught up in student unrest that turns violent. Protests escalate against the strict censorship imposed by Poland’s Communist government. In response, the government mounts a cynical campaign that ensnares his whole family to purge Jewish Communist Party members and coerce them to immigrate to Israel.
Seeds illustrates to its readers that a country’s government is led by individuals who have the power to make decisions that are deliberately detrimental to a significant segment of its citizens… and reminds us all that Ryszard’s family’s predicaments could, at any moment, become our own.
