Publisher Comments:

This book is a survival story, typical of many, during the centuries of the Jewish nation. Born to a well-to-do textile industrialist family in Łódz, Poland, the author describes his family life before WWII; their struggle to stay alive in the Warsaw Ghetto; their escape; the daily struggles of survival getting by with falsified Aryan papers all through the German occupation and the Warsaw Uprising; and their attempt to reestablish themselves in Łódz once the War ended.

The author, enchanted by early Communist ideas, but having learned of the true nature of Stalinism, immigrates with his new family to Israel without money, language or connections. But due to hard work and an innate problem-solving capacity, he achieves success and raises a happy family.

However, Deva his beloved wife develops debilitating rheumatoid arthritis, and life stops being so easy. The family disperses, and the author, struggling with cancer, recalls the lights and shadows of his fascinating life.
