From Poland to Brooklyn: The Lives Of My Grandparents, <br>Two Holocaust Survivors
Written by the grandson of two Holocaust survivors, From Poland to Brooklyn provides a new and insightful analysis of the Holocaust. The book includes thought-provoking quotations from law professors, historians, civil libertarians, and Holocaust survivors. My grandparents, Leon and Cecilie Matzner, are two of the individuals who survived the Holocaust against incredible odds. This book recounts their lives and experiences in Poland before, during, and after the Holocaust. The book also recounts their courageous journey to America and their lives in Brooklyn, New York. Their hearts and minds are replete with hope and bravery, and, above all, a spirit that could not be broken-even by the most horrific tragedy the world has ever seen.
