The book was just released last Friday and I received a copy this morning. Rabbi Rosenberg is going to distribute hundreds of copies of this book to educational institutions around the world so they can have a comprehensive resource to study that contains testimonials of people directly or indirectly affected by the events during World War II.
Thank you so much Rabbi Rosenberg for all you do - providing the opportunity and forum for the survivors, their children and their grandchildren to put their testimonies into print for perpetuity is priceless! The book is a hefty volume with remembrances and stories very similar to my father's. The rabbi has performed a great mitzvah (good deed) by publishing and distributing this important book worldwide! Highly recommended!!!
Should be required by History 101, Holocaust 101. His monumental collection is the biggest tribute to all the nameless, childless, orphaned Jews throughout Europe, Israel, everywhere. It is a selfless gift to all of us, a legacy to leave to the next generations. I'm ordering copies after copies of this masterpiece to give to family, friends, students.
The stories are infused with aspirations, defiance; will to live, survival, search for survivors and occasional reconnections. The uncanny tenacity and perseverance, not without a struggle, to move on with their lives and build/re-build their family lives.
The stories are written simplistically, but very captivating with very powerful imagery and episodes that capture each moment effectively. An atmosphere of hope surrounds many events.
The book is divided into several very well organized chapters that make it an easy read.
No history book can tell a story such as this one. To capture the meaning and depth of the Holocaust, one must read each and every story Rabbi Rosenberg collected.

This is the only publication about the Holocaust which doesn't highlight the Jewish people as just victims with no recourse. Every story about this dark time in human history is of the utmost importance never to be used as a tool to further politically advance any group or agenda.
Echoes of the Holocaust is a must read for all to memorialize so "Never Again" brings to life true meaning.
