Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Millions of Jews were murdered during the Holocaust. Those people fortunate enough to survive had their lives destroyed by the Nazis. Survivors had to rebuild their lives, often from nothing: no homes, no jobs, and no family. Author Betty N. Hoffman details stories of survival from the Holocaust and the liberation of Nazi Europe, from the Displaced Persons camps to the founding of the State of Israel.
