Few are familiar with one of the Holocaust’s most monstrous acts, the systematic murder of 5,000 Jewish residents in a Nazi-occupied Polish town, Trochenbrod, on August 11, 1942. Of the 33 who escaped death, only one person remains to describe these events―Betty Gold. Twelve-year-old Betty and her family hid inside a secret wall built by her father and, when it seemed safe, crept toward the forest, which became their home.

In part one of Beyond Trochenbrod, Gold provides a brief history of Trochenbrod, the only all-Jewish town to exist outside of biblical Israel, and describes a series of cherished childhood experiences before the arrival of Soviet and, later, Nazi occupiers. Part two centers on the family’s struggles against hunger, pain, despair, and the constant fear of being discovered while living in the forest. How the family survived against these and other threats is nothing short of miraculous. Their unlikely rescue, stay at a displaced persons camp, and journey to America are the subjects of part three. In the fourth and final part of her memoir, Gold recounts her difficult adjustment to her new home in Cleveland and discusses how her Trochenbrod experiences have transformed her life and the lives of others.

Man’s inhumanity is undeniable in Beyond Trochenbrod, but so is humanity’s capacity to prevail in spite of unimaginable odds.

About the Author:

The late Betty Gold (1930–2014) served as a docent at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Ohio, sharing her Holocaust story with countless visitors. She was invited regularly to speak at high schools, colleges, and universities and was a guest on both local and national radio and television broadcasts. Lost Town, a 2012 film documentary about Trochenbrod, features Betty Gold as a central figure in the retelling of the town’s saga.

Read a July 29, 2014 tribute to Betty Gold in The Cleveland Jewish News.

Mark Hodermarsky has edited or authored several books: The Cleveland Sports Legacy Since 1945, The Cleveland Sports Legacy, 1900–1945, The Toe: The Lou Groza Story (with Lou Groza), Baseball’s Greatest Writers, and The Object of the Game (with Charles Kyle). He has contributed articles to a variety of publications, including the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Saint Ignatius Magazine. Hodermarsky teaches English at Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio.
