A survivor's duty : surviving the Holocaust and fighting for Israel : a story of father and son / Gabriel Laufer

Publication | Library Call Number: DS135.H93 L378 2018
Book cover

"This book is the author's attempt and duty to, in the words of Elie Wiesel, "Bear witness for the dead and for the living". Through extensive research in archives, family documents, and literature, Laufer unearthed his father's lost biography as a slave in the Hungarian forced labor battalions and in German concentration camps, his return to Hungary, and his daring escape from Stalinist Hungary to Israel. Laufer's father's experiences mark one of the saddest points in Jewish history and the story is contrasted with his own in Israel during the Six Days war, a pinnacle in Jewish history and during the Israeli wars that followed"-- Provided by publisher.
