Publisher's Synopsis

Rescued from the Warsaw Ghetto by Polish-Christians, a young Jewish boy hides in the guise of a Polish child. In a remarkable act of altruism his rescuers refuse to abandon him as they traverse war-ravaged post-Holocaust Europe seething with an upsurge of Anti-Semitism.

"David's post-Holocaust search for his identity serves as background for a variety of human experiences and adventures as well as touching personal impressive document about David Gilat's journey to self-discovery that will contribute to our understanding of those important times."Havi Dreifuss, Ph.D.Historian of the Holocaust in Eastern EuropeDept. of Jewish History, Tel Aviv University

"...set within the devastation of post-war Europe, amid the ashes of the Holocaust, we find a generosity of spirit and a commitment to moral decency guaranteed to lift our souls. It is a story that needs to be told and told again."Rabbi Ed FeinsteinSenior Rabbi Valley Beth Shalom, Encino, CaliforniaAuthor: In Pursuit of Godliness and a Living Judaism: The Life and Thought of Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis
