We Never Lost Hope: A Holocaust Memoir and Love Story ~ The only thing we can do about the past

The only thing we can do about the past is not to let it be repeated. Most of the survivors did not want revenge, they just wanted to get on with their lives. I suppose the best revenge is in education. My newly published book, We Never Lost Hope: A Holocaust Memoir and Love Story, was written to honor my parents and family members that lived and died during that horrific time. They managed to find hope and love.
