About this product
- DescriptionPart of a new Holocaust remembrance series of important testimonies and memoirs from the unique archives of Yad Vashem, the world centre for Jewish history. This is the story of two brothers caught up in the Nazi persecution of the Jews. After being transferred to several detention camps throughout Europe, they were eventually transported to Auschwitz. Rescued by the Quakers, they endured stays in several orphanages and eventual separation, before making new lives in the US and Israel, which included for Frederick a role in America's space programme. Touching and gripping, this autobiography arises out of their need to tell their story to their grandchildren. With its unusual narrative style and interplay between the two brothers, this is one of the most interesting holocaust narratives to appear in recent years.
