Description
Unique and compelling, this husband-and-wife memoir of the Holocaust will move and inform generations. As we lose eyewitnesses to this ultimate horror, the Kuperhands present us with an elegantly restrained, yet hard-hitting, Kaddish to Polish Jewry.

Miriam was the daughter of a prosperous furrier; Saul was the son of a poor shoemaker. Miriam was sixteen when she and her brother roamed the wild countryside of Poland, searching for food and shelter -- and for their parents. Saul was only a few years older when he watched the smoke rising from the crematoria and knew that his parents, sister, and eight brothers were gone forever. Miriam lived by hiding; Saul lived by escaping from the camp.

The authors emphasize the essential role that Polish Christians played in their survival and stress that wit, courage, faith, luck, and even a strong will to live were worthless without their help.
