In August 1947, the CIA predicted that if war broke out between the Jews and Arabs of what was then the British Mandate of Palestine, the Jews would lose. What if they'd been right?

In 1963, fifteen years after Israel lost its war of independence, there are fewer than 60,000 Jews remaining in concentration camps run by the Soviet-aligned "Arab People's Republic," which is secretly planning to murder them all before an all-out war breaks out with the American-allied United Hashemite Kingdom. Can 17-year-old camp escapee Ziona Tsur and her mother Naomi somehow capture the attention of a distracted world... before it's too late?

The first chapter of this book was published in a slightly different format as the short story "Palestina" in the May-June 2006 of Interzone. The story was a finalist for the Sidewise Award for Alternate History (Short Form).
