Uncle Berl: Collected Short stories
"This collection of sixty-nine short stories and one poem combines works providing glimpses into life during the Holocaust, W.W. II and post-war period. UNCLE BERL tells the story of author’s maternal uncle and how he and his family survived the Holocaust. The final story in the collection “Quid pro Quo” gives us a look into the life of Berl’s son, a colonel in the Israeli Defense Forces and military attaché to Argentina. This collection of wry and humorous stories will strike a chord of recognition in the reader, as the tales focus on what is universal in human experience. George Oscar Lee with his uncanny wit and understanding of human nature, will certainly make you laugh, and sometimes cry, as he cover life under good and sometimes not-so-good conditions."
