Book Review- Zalman Ber: The True Story of the Man the Nazis Could Not Kill - Lisa Mishler

Sunday, February 26, 2017

Heroism. courage and a lot of luck in this true story of a pair Holocaust survivors as told to the author by her father. It is a story that should be read. It is in the recounting and remembering the past that will ultimately stop us from repeating that history! I don't remember who originally said this but

"Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it"

This recounting is particularity relevant in these times we are going through right now in my opinion.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Zalman Ber's story, told in his own voice, is a powerful addition to the historical recountings of World War II. Together, he and his wife, Luba, survived the Holocaust. They escaped the horrors the Nazis inflicted on their Polish villages. They fought with partisans. Then later, Zalman enlisted with the Russian military.

Their story is about love, war, heroism, and miracles. It is a testament to their resiliency and capacity not just to survive, but to flourish and rise above tremendous adversity. Love, courage, and a sheer force of will drove Luba during her long journey to find Zalman, alone, in one of the coldest winters in recorded history while being surrounded by Nazi soldiers. Luba with her sensitivity influenced Zalman when, time and time again, he should have been killed and was not. Their story deserves to be experienced and honored.

About the Author; (from Amazon)

Lisa Kotz Mishler, I am the daughter of Holocaust survivors and heroes Sol and Luba Kotz, I grew up hearing stories of my parent's life in Poland during World War II. As a professional painter working primarily in oils, acrylic and watercolors, those stories began to influence my work. My first book L'Chayim - To Life, is a collection of paintings and narration inspired by her parents harrowing and miraculous journey in Poland before emigrating to the United States. My work has been shown in the Louvre in Paris, as well as in galleries in the United States. You can learn more about my work at www.lisamishler.com
