This graphic work of non-fiction explores the concept of ‘surviving’ in terms of what it means to be Jewish. Akira Ohiso, half-Japanese half-Irish, is a recent convert to Judaism. As a... More > new Jew, he struggles with his role within the religion and in the face of a fresh fear, anti-Semitism. Through the process of conversion, Akira learned his maternal great-grandfather, Jules, was a silent Jew that suppressed his Jewish identity. After his death, the family found a simple Kiddush cup, a vestige of a hidden past. At the time of his conversion, Akira helped Holocaust survivors continue to survive. The book represents the triumvirate of endurance: Akira’s struggle with Judaism and Jules’ reemergence set against the backdrop of Akira’s retelling of Holocaust stories. Surviving takes an intimate look into the stories of related Jews on both sides of a century and the horror settled in between.< Less

A testament of remarkable clarity and humanity, wrung from dark experience.— KIRKUS REVIEWS. ***Surviving the Holocaust by a hair, Anders became a brilliant scientist.

David Zaid survived the extermination of Jews in Poland ordered by Adolph Hitler. He went on to become a hero in the Israeli army. His voice is now stilled, but with this book he continues to speak... More > out against the holocaust-deniers who insist that the atrocities, the death camps, the routine executions of Jews, never really happened. Zaid lived through it, and knows the truth.

He survived once again, and saw his final dream come true when he, his wife and two sons, became citizens in the United States, his final and most beloved homeland.< Less

“I thought I knew that I would get through, but it was totally irrational and six million people didn’t, and I am sure they thought the same.” - Anka Bergman, one of the three women... More > who survived Auschwitz whose testimony (recorded in Cardiff, Wales) forms the basis of Frances Rapport's extraordinary "poetic transcriptions". She is "a sympathetic listener who can establish the necessary rapport to elicit information that many of those who suffered the shoah have repressed for decades." (Leonard Mars) "These stories remind us what humans can inflict on each other, utterly negating our common humanity. But we also hear the human capacity to survive, to mutually aid, to continue to love and affirm life." (From the Foreword by Arthur W. Frank) -- ISBN: 978-09569473-9-0 -- Available on Amazon: print and Kindle editions. More Hafan Books at: www.lulu.com/hafan. Contact: t.cheesman@swansea.ac.uk.

"ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2011" (Kirkus Reviews). Edward (15) survived the Holocaust by an audacious lie invented by his father: his mother, Erica, would claim to be a German foundling... More > raised by a Jewish family. The ploy didn’t save his father, who was shot along with 98% of the Jews in Latvia, but it gave Erica the provisional status of an Aryan and her two sons that of half-Jews. The scheme became a cat-and-mouse game with skeptical Nazi officials; the family gleaned one temporary reprieve after another as they amassed bogus documentation of German ancestry—the author used his knowledge of chemistry to alter identity papers—always aware that one false step could land them in a mass grave. He tells this harrowing story with absorbing lucidity, with a simple moral vision—“I met enough decent, brave, and noble Germans and Latvians during the war to be immunized against prejudice”—that resonates. A testament of remarkable clarity and humanity, wrung from dark experience. (Condensed from Kirkus Reviews).< Less
