Recommended Reading

Eddie Weinstein’s personal account of survival during the Holocaust, just re-published by Yad Vashem, is an especially moving and harrowing account of the Holocaust. He was only 17-years-old when he was sent to work as a forced laborer. Eddie was deported to Treblinka, but managed to escape, return to his hometown in Poland and warn the remaining Jews about the gas chambers and the fate awaiting whoever didn’t escape. He went into hiding with his father, escaping an incredible six times during the Holocaust. His story is told clearly and is filled with details that bring the narrative to life.

His book, 17 Days in Treblinka can be easily ordered online here (and shipped directly to you.)
