My Name Is Not Miriam

In her novel My Name Is Not Miriam, the writer takes us through the life of a Roma woman who survived the horrors of World War II. Malika was sent to Auschwitz, where she was forced to change her name to Miriam in order to survive. Even after the war, when she lived in Sweden, she continued to keep a secret about her true identity. However, her past haunts her and does not give her peace. The time has come for Miriam to reveal her secret, but how will it be accepted?

My Name Is Not Miriam is a novel about shame, guilt and fear of the untold truth, about the most shocking part of European history, about the attitude towards the Roma and about life in Sweden after the war. Reminding us of the dark and not-so-distant past, Maigul Axelson makes us think about today's still insurmountable prejudices.
