about our book

Witness to History untangles the complex and tragic history of the Holocaust, providing the reader with a deeper understanding of the unique nature of the tragedy. Yet Witness to History is more than a history book. It is a story of the Jewish spirit, of the human spirit, of incomprehensible loss, and finally, triumphantly, of rebirth.
