Trial of the Foreskin: My Years in the Lion's Den

ByYaakov IsraeliBenjamin Rubin

A dramatic tale of hidden identity and escape during the Second World War, which also reveals to the reader part of the rich fabric of pre-war Jewish life in Poland. Yasha Garbuz was raised in the complex cultural mix of Pinsk, speaking Yiddish, Hebrew, Polish and Russian, where Zionists, socialists, White Russians and Poles interacted in daily life. Drafted into the Polish Army, he was taken as a prisoner of war by the Nazis in 1939. The story details Yasha’s harrowing wartime experience, when, for five full years, in the heart of Nazi Germany, he hid his Jewish identity, escaping at the last minute in a freight car to Switzerland. Yasha fulfills his dream to move to Israel, where he establishes a new life.
