In the Shade of the Trees, in the Shadow of the Flames
This book about the Holocaust can only be read with bated-breath and great emotion. We learn about he plight of simple, innocent Jews: we live through the experiences of the author, we suffer with him and are choked with tears as we read the dramatic descriptions of his experiences at the hands of the Nazis. The clarity of his vision as a youth, as he describes his tribulations during his exportation from his warm home in the town where he grew up to the various extermination camps where he fought courageously the battle for survival until the Holy One, blessed be He, in his graciousness, saved him from the inferno. A true story of triumph over devastation! A book not to be missed!!
