Blue ribbons bitter bread: The life of Joice Nankivell Loch

Susanna De Vries

Joice Loch was an extraordinary Australian. She had the inspired courage that saved many hundreds of Jews and Poles in the Second World War, the compassion that made her a self trained doctor to tens of thousands of refugees, the incredible grit that took her close to death in several theatres of war, and the dedication to truth and justice that shone forth in her own books and a lifetime of astonishing heroism. This classic Australian biography is a tribute to one of Australia's most heroic women, who always spoke with great fondness of Queensland as her birthplace.
