Synopsis: 'Through thick and thin, never separate. Stick together, guard each other, and live for one another.' As Hitler's war intensified, the Ovitz family would have good reason to stand by their mother's mantra. Descending from the cattle train into the death camp of Auschwitz, all twelve emerged in 1945 as survivors - the largest family to survive intact. What saved them? Ironically, the fact that they were sought out by the 'Angel of Death' himself - Dr Joseph Mengele. For seven of the Ovitzes were dwarfs - and not just any dwarfs, but a beloved and highly successful vaudeville act known as the Lilliput Troupe. Together, they were the only all-dwarf ensemble with a full show of their own in the history of entertainment. The Ovitzes intrigued Mengele, and amongst the thousands on whom he performed his loathsome experiments, they became his prize 'patients': 'You're something special, not like the rest of them.' It was this disturbing affection that saved their lives. After being plunged into the darkest moments in modern history, this remarkable troupe emerged with spirits undimmed, and went on to light up Europe and Israel, which offered them a new home, with their unique performances. Giants reveals their moving and inspirational story.

About the Author: Yehuda Koren and Eilat Negev are respected writers and journalists. Their books include The First Lady of Fleet Street and Lover of Unreason: The Life and Tragic Death of Assia Wevill.

Book Description Book Condition: New. ‘Through thick and thin, never separate. Stick together, guard each other and live for one another.’ The Ovitz family had good reason to stand by their mother’s mantra as they descended from the cattle train into the death camp of Auschwitz. Yet all twelve emerged alive in 1945. Ironically, they survived because they were sought out by the ‘Angel of Death’ himself – Dr Joseph Mengele. For seven of the Ovitzes were dwarfs. Together, they were a beloved and highly successful vaudeville act known as the Lilliput Troupe, the only all-dwarf ensemble with a full show in entertainment history. The Ovitzes intrigued Mengele, and it was his disturbing affection for them that saved their lives. The troupe went on to light up Europe and Israel with their unique performances and Giants reveals their moving and inspirational story. Bookseller Inventory # 2823
