Prior to World War II, Poland was a vibrant cultural, industrial and economic center for a vast Jewish population. The Jewish community contributed not only to the development of housing, but community buildings, schools, theatres and synagogues. These mementos of Jewish life are now a memory, having been destroyed by the Nazi barbarism that was rampant in most European countries.

Poland was totally obliterated during World War II, and many of the country’s people lost their lives in concentration or death camps, from starvation or other deplorable circumstances—and all because of their faith. We know these dark stories well, yet there are many filled with hope, strength, love and survival. Abraham Bichler’s "Little Miracles" is an account of the Holocaust that explores the possibilities found in hope and faith despite the most dire of circumstances.

As a boy, Bichler and his family were taken from their home in Poland and shipped to the frozen Russian wastelands of Siberia and the Taiga, where they were enslaved in Stalin’s labor camps. Surviving the harsh winter climate was nearly as challenging as surviving in the camp—a torturous hell where arriving five minutes late to work guaranteed a six-month jail sentence. As the years passed, Bichler and his family struggled and encountered many hardships, but constantly searched for the "little miracles" that ultimately led to their survival and immigration to the United States.

Bichler has focused on the Holocaust that has been overshadowed by the more familiar stories of Hitler’s concentration camps and Jewish ghettos, but one that is equally important and shared by many.
