About this product
- DescriptionIt is May 1945; World War II has just ended. The few Jews who were left at that time in Europe, who have survived the valleys of death and the concentration camps made great efforts to return to their homes. They were soon to discover that they had where to return to; their houses had been destroyed and their families murdered. Determined to find a new home, they struggled to reach the shores of their ancient homeland - Eretz Israel.
- Author BiographyAvraham Aviel (Lipkunski) was born in 1929 in Dowgalishok, an agricultural village in nowadays Belarus. In May 1942, as a lad of fourteen, he escaped from the pit of death where he witnessed the murder of the Jews of Radun and the surrounding area. He fled to the forest and joined the Partisans, with whom he stayed for more than two years. After the war, in November 1945, he finally realized his dream and made his way to Palestine, carried by the illegal immigrant boat Katriel Yaffe. However, British forces, governing Palestine at the time, captured the boat before landing and sent all its illegal passengers aboard to a detention camp in Cyprus. Six months later he was released and arrived immediately in Palestine. Soon, he joined the forces fighting for the independence of the newly born country of Israel. In his first book A Village Named Dowgalishok the author describes the world of yesterday that no longer exists. The book was highly appreciated by many critics. This book starts where his previous book has ended.
