Heda Margolius Kovály was a well-known writer and translator who survived the Auschwitz extermination camp and whose first husband, Rudolf Margolius, a deputy minister of foreign trade, was found guilty in the notorious Slánský show trials in what is one of the darkest chapters in Czechoslovak history. Heda published a memoir which has been in print ever since. But now, a new publication called "Hitler, Stalin and I" is set to be published in English.
