Life's Meaing in the Face of Suffering: Testimonies of Holocaust Survivors
What do we do when we are suddenly subjected to traffic and senseless suffering - suffering we did not bring upon ourselves, that we feel we do not deserve? This book is about the suffering of Jewish men, women and children who were singled out as targets of senseless hatred and ruthless persecution by the Nazis during the Second World War. The struggle of Holocaust survivors to come to terms with what happened to them in the Nazi concentration and death camps gives us a poignant picture of the human struggle to understand what life is all about in the face of its tragedies and hardships, and of the evil of man's inhumanity to man.--Cover.
