9780889650831: Tapestry of Hope

Tapestry of Hope is the story of Alice Kern, who was interned during World War II along with millions of other European Jews. She experienced the horrors of both Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen and weighed less than fifty pounds when finally liberated by the American Forces.
In 1944, all Jews in the small town of Sighet, Romania were rounded up and shipped off to Poland. Alice and her mother were among them. They were allowed only the clothes on their backs. Other personal and household belongings were left behind.
Among those belongings was a large and beautiful tapestry which had been promised to Alice's brother, Zoli. (Detailed description of the tapestry may be found in the Preface.) Recovery of the tapestry would be a longed-for and miraculous result of this book. And it would be handsomely rewarded.
In the meantime, Ailce Kern's story as related in these pages will both shock and inspire. You will find it a truly dramatic story of courage and perseverance, a powerful story, plainly told, strangely free of bitterness. It is, in fact, a tapestry of hope, too.
