Witness: Voices from the Holocaust
Ordering Information

 

"Witness recounts the Holocaust through the language of memory and personal experience.  From it we learn, in ways otherwise impossible, what it meant to live as a Jew and die as a Jew in Nazi-occupied Europe.   It not only tells us what happened; it draws us into that history and makes us live it with honesty, immediacy and astonishing power.  To these witnesses we owe an understanding of our own humanity that we would otherwise never discover.  This is the finest compendium of Holocaust memory I know."
-- WALTER REICH, FORMER DIRECTOR U.S. HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM
 
"Witness brings us vividly, searingly, the interwoven voices of individuals who lived through the Holocaust and now recount events burned into memory.  It is a work of extraordinary power."
-- CHIAM POTOK
