A sensitive study, carefully constructed and empirically based, that supplies substantial, balanced insight where before there were only opinions and surmise. The full range of the victims' religious feeling is revealed, often in their own agonized reflections. Everyone concerned about contemporary religion, responses to catastrophe, and the state of Jewish belief will want to read this book.--Robert M. Selzer, author of Jewish People, Jewish Thought An invaluable and long overdue contribution to Holocaust studies. Such personal testimony for survivors reminds us that despite the unspeakable horrors, human dignity and decency and faith were never fully stifled.--Gerald Green, author of the TV drama Holocaust
