AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This is the story of Benjamin, who fled his native Poland during the Nazi occupation, aiming to fulfil his father's long-held dream of settling in Palestine. But along the way he and his fellow survivors are stranded in Calcutta, and somehow it becomes inevitable that he will stay...
There, Where the Pepper Grows is the moving story of a family set against the drama of real historical events. It brings East and West together in an unforgettable novel of a search for refuge, and a passionate plea for tolerance. (Publisher's blurb)
