Narrow Escapes: Childhood Memories of the Holocaust and Their Legacy, Revised Edition
Narrow escapes defines Samuel Oliner's life in more ways than one. Not only is he a Holocaust survivor who barely eluded the genocidal "Final Solution" that Nazi Germany unleashed on the European Jews during the Second World War, but Oliner is also a ground-breaking Holocaust scholar who has focused attention on the rescuers - small in number but immensely significant nonetheless - who risked their lives to give Jews narrow life-saving escapes during those dark times. Oliner's personal experience of the Holocaust produced memories that have never left him. Oliner's significant epilogue in this new edition both updates his story and and helps to show how his narrow escape led to a remarkable career.
