Marking Humanity : Stories, Poems, & Essays by Holocaust Survivors
Imagine sitting across from a member of the German Secret State Police and negotiating with him to allow for the release of Jewish youngsters and for the establishment of a Jewish school. What can a teenager do when forced to march past the gallows and see how two of his campmates were hung? These are just some of the very real experiences that afflicted the 46 featured Holocaust survivors, who remained resilient and went on to rebuild their lives in the United States, Canada, Israel, Australia, England, and Germany. Through their bios and 70 writings, Marking Humanity provides a first-hand glimpse into their hardships, triumphs, courage, personal reflections, prayers, and growth, while also illuminating lessons from the survivors and Holocaust and emphasizing their relevancy today. Readers are encouraged to consider how every person helps to shape the world and the collective shifts that can be created so future generations discover the true meaning of "Never Again."
