Manufacturer Description

This is a book about Chaskel Tydor, an Auschwitz and Buchenwald survivor, who was at various times a bookkeeper, metallurgist, kibbutz founder, Hebrew book publisher, uranium mine manager, and travel agent. Spanning close to 90 years of life, his story takes the reader through three continents, two marriages, and the Holocaust. It is also the story of Jewish people during the 20th century who found themselves wandering between countries, learning to function in new languages and societies, building and joining various Jewish communities, and continuously adopting different outward ways of life while trying to maintain their Jewish beliefs and practices. Through the story of one, albeit unique, man, we learn the history of an era: Jewish life in Eastern Europe before the First World War, events in Weimar and Hitler's Germany during the 1920s and 1930s, the struggle for survival in Nazi camps, the creation of the State of Israel, Jewish life in the US after the Second World War, and events in Israel following the Yom Kippur War. This is a book of Jewish survival and triumph, chronicling the transformation and rebirth not only of one man but of an entire Jewish world. Throughout, the book provides substantive "Further Reading" lists and bibliographic information which allows readers to source and compare other scholarship and writings on the places and historical circumstances presented.
