About this product
- DescriptionMordechai Judovits grew up in the town of Dej, Transylvania before the Holocaust. In 1944 he and his family are sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp, yet he miraculously survives and is liberated in 1945. Dealing with the three periods of his life, Modechai Judovits describes life before, during, and after the Holocaust in this gripping autobiography. He includes details of the culture and life of Jews in the shtetl of Dej, specifically the wedding of Rabbi Moshe Hager, the Wizsnitzer Rebbe. Using the theme of the six million who perished in the Holocaust, Judovits cites ideas on how to increase the dwindling Jewish population by the same number of those who were lost to bring about a Jewish rebirth.
