Born in Bucharest, Romania, Haya Leah Molnar's Jewish identity was hidden from her in order to protect her against anti-Semitism. When she was ten, she and her family escaped the Communist regime and emigrated to Israel, and later to the US. A former copywriter and creative director in advertising, she now writes full time in New York City. In addition to having an eclectic taste for reading other authors, she loves designing her own line of jewelry, gardening, traveling, and kayaking. Under a Red Sky is her first book.

Under a Red Sky

Haya Leah Molnar

Eva Zimmermann is eight years old, and she has just discovered she is Jewish. Such is the life of an only child living in postwar Bucharest, a city that is changing in ever more frightening ways. Eva’s family, full of eccentric and opinionated adults, will do absolutely anything to keep her safe—even if it means hiding her identity from her. With razor-sharp depictions of her animated relatives, Haya Leah Molnar’s memoir of her childhood captures with touching precocity the very adult realities of living behind the iron curtain.
