Front Cover
KTAV Pub., Jan 1, 1991 - Biography & Autobiography - 161 pages
Author Abraham Zuckerman was born & raised in the Polish city of Cracow & spent his teenage years in 7 different Nazi concentration camps as a slave laborer. A VOICE IN THE CHORUS is his powerful & moving story. Two features of Zuckerman's narrative are of special interest. First, he grew up a religiously observant Orthodox Jew, & his experiences of evil & suffering during the Holocaust strengthened his faith. Second, his survival was partly due to his being assigned to a factory run by the German industrialist, Oskar Schindler, who at great personal risk saved several hundred Jews from death. "I was moved by the pain & anguish your book contains. Like all survivors testimonies, yours must be read by anyone committed to bear witness."--Elie Wiesel-Andrew W Mellon Professor in Humanities, Boston Univ. "The story of Abraham Zuckerman....must be required reading for every junior & senior high school student...woven throughout the story of this young man there is the story of moral courage...the sanctification of life-KIDDUSH HAHAYIM' in spite of the constant attempts by the Nazis to murder each one of God's people."--Rose Thering , O.P., Ph.D. Exec Director, National Christian Leadership Conference for Israel.
