    ‘I do not want to stay here, either. Poland is just a temporary place for us.’ Israeli author Orit Raz began her writing career writing children's programs for Israeli television, where she also created children's stories that became best sellers in Israel. She has published about 55 books for children, youth, and adults. One of her children's books was translated to Portuguese and was published in Brazil, and another became a very successful theater play in Israel. LOVE LOST IN THE WAR is her fi ‘I do not want to stay here, either. Poland is just a temporary place for us.’ Israeli author Orit Raz began her writing career writing children's programs for Israeli television, where she also created children's stories that became best sellers in Israel. She has published about 55 books for children, youth, and adults. One of her children's books was translated to Portuguese and was published in Brazil, and another became a very successful theater play in Israel. LOVE LOST IN THE WAR is her first novel for adults. The history of the writing of this book is fascinating – Orit took over the recording of the work as set down by her husband’s parents, changing the focus of the story form a war history to a love story. The result is an eloquently beautiful love story unlike the many stories about the plight of the Jews during World War II. The change in emphasis does not remove the pain form the incidents that occurred to this couple, but instead draws attention to the endurance of true love despite such obstacles as war, separation, personal loss, and time. Orit’s prose is lyrical and poetic as the opening of the book suggests well – ‘Israel walked slowly in the cold dark of night. Clouds peppered the sky and the stars seemed to have all but disappeared, now just a flicker of light suggesting their existence. He had no way of protecting himself from the freezing wind against his face. He tightened his wool scarf around his forehead and cheeks. His eyes peeked through the small slit, his gaze following the sounds of a bush slamming into the fence in a rage. The light of the half-moon shone momentarily from above, alternately peeking out and hiding behind the thick blanket of clouds. The wind pounded the slim, bright trunks of the birch trees, shaking clear, fat raindrops from the treetops, reminders of the earlier flood. Israel’s boots plodded through the dark puddles, leaves peeling away from them. Heavy mud collected in the treads, making it difficult to walk. I’ll wait for her here until she comes, he thought. When he saw the figure in a gray woolen coat, black umbrella hanging on her arm, his body trembled in his own winter coat, not warm enough for this cold. Or maybe it was excitement. It seemed to him that even the cat, dozing by the window of the house across the street, could hear the wild pounding of his heart, which had begun to experience this curious rhythm the moment Paula emerged from among the gray houses, her heels clicking against the road. “Paula!” He cried, reaching out for her. “Israel, is that you?” Paula replied, “What are you doing out here so late in this weather?” What was he doing in the cold so late? He was ready to stand in the cabbage, cucumber and strawberry patches until morning, if only to catch a glimpse of her thin body passing under the birch trees, wrapped in her gray woolen coat. “Waiting for you,” he tried to control the tremor in his voice, walking beside her now, his mind searching for words.’ Orit has supplied a fine synopsis of her book – ‘Israel loves Paula, but they are separated in their struggle to survive World War II. Israel and Paula are teens living in Biala Podlaska, Poland, on the eve of World War II. One day Israel tells Paula that he will marry her in a few years. She objects, and their friendship ends. But when the Germans enter the city, they flee together to Russia and volunteer in Soviet labor camps - to survive. They are sent to different places. Paula works as a nurse, where she excels and is sent to Moscow to study medicine. There she marries Mila and has a son, but Mila dies at war soon after. At war’s end, in love from afar, will they ever succeed in reuniting? Meanwhile, Israel returns to his hometown as a Polish soldier and finds a letter from Paula. Their love is rekindled from afar, and he proposes marriage by mail. But will Israel ever be able to manipulate the Russian authorities to obtain a visa to penetrate the Iron Curtain and then reunite with Paula in Moscow? Will their love ever again be free to flourish?’ A tender note from the Epilogue: ‘After immigrating to Israel, the couple changed their family name from Friedberg to Freyen, a name that commemorates the names of their loved ones who perished in the Holocaust: Fania, Raphael, Yosef, Esther, and Noah. Touching, dramatic, warm and beautifully scribed, LOST LOVE IN THE WAR is the story of transcending love – a book we all need to absorb as it changes the way we view love lost and found.

Love Lost in the War is the tragic story of Israel and Paula. As teenagers in Poland, Israel falls in love with Paula. Yet when Israel proposes marriage, Paula is reluctant to wait a few years to get married, and this abruptly stops their friendship. But when the Germans occupy the city, Israel and Paula escape together. Still, the war tears them apart again. Paula gets married and has a son, but her husband Mila dies during the war. Israel, in the meantime, has returned to Poland, where he finds a letter from Paula and starts having feelings for her again… But can their love survive war? This is an inspiring story about how long can transcend even the worst circumstances, such as war. For me, the story was quite personal as my own grandmother and grandfather got seperated during the war – my grandfather took his brother’s place to go to one of the labor camps when his brother got arrested for smuggling. My grandmother was about to marry someone else when my grandfather showed up back in town, several years after World War II (yes, this is the kind of stuff you only see in movies). Everyone was convinced my grandfather had passed away in the war but in reality, it just took him several years to get back home after having been freed by American soldiers. Anyway, back to the book. It reminded me a lot about my personal story and maybe that’s part of why I liked it so much, but another part of it was the lyrical prose. I’m a huge fan of Raz’ writing here and the prose is perfect for a love story such as this one.

Through a letter from Paula, he gets to know about the pains she is passing through. He decides to take her out of this vicious circle and proposes to marry her. But life is not as sweet as we think.

Israel is sent to one camp while Paula is Love Lost in the War is about two people, Paula and Israel, who grew up together in Biala Podlaska, Poland and fell in love.

But before they can get married the Germans enter the city, Israel ask Paula to leave with him and go to Russia where they find jobs in labor camps. Israel is sent to one camp while Paula is sent to another. After their separation they don’t see each other or have any idea where the other is or have been sent. Paula is trained to be a nurse and then later sent on to University to be a doctor. With no way to find out where Israel is or how to find him Paula goes on with her life. She meets a nice you man, Mila whom she marries and has a child with. It is not long before Mila is sent off to fight in the war where he dies and leaves Paula to raise their baby alone. Many years later after joining the Polish army Israel decides to go visit his home town and finds letters from Paula telling of her life with her new family and baby and the death of her husband. After reading the letters Israel contacts Paula and they start to correspond with each other through letters and rekindle their love. Israel wants nothing more than to be with the love if his life and makes plans to visit Paula. But before he can go to her he has to first get a visa from the Russian government. And if he does manage to convince them to give him a visa to enter the Iron Curtain will he then be able to get permission to bring Paula and her child back with him? Will Israel be able to obtain the documents he needs to reunite with Paula or is their life together doomed? Love Lost in the War is the story of two people who fell in love on the eve of the war when the Germans invaded Poland. Love Lost in the War is the true account of two people, soulmates, who fell in love and were separated for many years but whose love was so strong that fate/destiny or whatever you prefer to call it couldn’t keep them apart. Love Lost in the War is an amazing and brilliantly written story of times lost and found of a love that was greater than any war. Love Lost in the War shows the struggles of two people and how far they will go for love. I would recommend Love Lost in the War to all fans of romance and history.

Though it is based on a real story, the author has done a fabulous job in presenting it like a novel. This makes the read all the more intense and intriguing. The plot (though it’s a real story) is very good and the characters are etched beautifully. They have been developed well. During the read, one easily gets involved in the story. This is the power of the narration style of the book. The language is simple and the pace is good. Overall, a captivating and inspirational read. Powerful enough to leave its mark on the readers.

    Love Lost in the War was a good story that I enjoyed reading. So many heartbreaking stories from this time in history. This book, just as the title suggests is about love lost in the war. The book is focused on the love story and not so much the atrocity of this time. I enjoyed the letters back and forth between Israel and Paula. I give Love Lost in the war 4 stars for its love story. I would recommend this book to Historical Fiction fans.

    A must read The compelling story of Israel and Paula as they try to survive WWII and it's aftermath. Love triumphs over evil but only through determination and luck It's difficult to understand why there is so much prejudice in this world. One of the best books I've read in a while

    Lost Love in the War I gave this 3 stars, as I had a hard time bouncing back and forth trying to figure out what was happening. Even the ending left me confused. Not one of my favorites.

    This beautifully written love story of Paula and Israel moved me to tears. An awesome portrayal of how the will to survive and love can overcome the atrocities of war. I cannot recommend this book enough-especially to lovers of historical fiction and romantics at heart.

    A nice little love story mixed in with the atrocities of that horrible war! Not a good time in history. The two wrote letters rather than "dating" and they were interesting to read. I wanted to strangle the mother-in-law!
