Publication | Library Call Number: DS134.72.B734 G65 2011
Book cover

"The book tells the life story of an extremely engaging and charming Polish Jew, Shmuel Braw (1906-1992), who lived through the traumatic historical events that shaped Jewish experiences in the twentieth century. The story is told ... to two avid listeners: Calvin Goldscheider, a social scientist, and Jeffrey M. Green, a writer and translator. Both the Holocaust and Shmuel's harrrowing experience as a prisoner in a Soviet labor camp in Siberia figure prominently in ths book, but Shmuel also describes his community in Tarnow, a town in southeastern Poland, in rich detail. After World War II, Shmuel settled in Melbourne, Australia, before eventually immigrating to Israel" -- p. 4 of cover.
