About this title


Fifty holocaust survivors share poignant tales of bravery, resilience, loss, and spirit, in which they describe day-to-day life in concentration camps, hideout experiences, and the guilt associated with posing as non-Jews.


"When I went back two years ago, standing in the place where they came to kill us, I showed my daughter and my grandson, 'This is where my ashes are supposed to have been'" says 70-year-old John Klein, one of the 50 survivors of the Nazi concentration camps who recount their horrifying stories in When They Came to Take My Father. The book was edited by Leora Kahn, a photography editor, and Rachel Hager, an editor at Parents magazine. Photographs are by Mark Seliger. The editors have wisely allowed the power of the testimony within to emerge. "Everybody knew that if you didn't get up for roll call, they would take you to the gas chamber," remembers Rosa Strygler. "One day ... I left my mother knowing that when I came back she would not be there. And she wasn't."
