|Plot Summary of Life Death Memories|
|"This is the story of young boy just before World War II growing up in small Polish Jewish Polisn town, who with his family, all lovingly and vividly portrayed, lived first under Soviet occupation (1939-41) followed by the brutal reign of the Nazis. Nearly his entire family perished. By luck he and his mother survived the War, hiding in the forest and protected by brave Ukranian women, who found the courage, in the face of savage anti-Semitism raging around them to come to their rescue, risking death at the hands of their neighbors and German masters. "What could have been another tale of devastation and desolation is transmuted into an affirmation of the human spirit" (Quote from Prof. Laurence H. Tribe, Havard Law School) "
