How the Survivors of the Holocaust Succeeded in America By William B. Helmreich (384 Pages)Publisher: Simon & Schuster, 1992
Though no one could emerge unscathed from a Nazi concentration camp, this enlightening study shows that, contrary to the stereotype, those who reached America constitute a vital, normal community marked by successful and varied lives. William Helmreich spent six years interviewing hundreds of people, examining thousands of documents, and exploring never-before-opened archives to create this remarkable portrait of the 140,000 survivors who built new lives here. Who were they? What kind of welcome did they find? How did they put aside their unimaginable ordeal to pick up the threads of daily life in an unfamiliar land?What has that life been like for them? The first in-depth study of survivors in America, this ground-breaking book is much more than superb history. It is also an extraordinary and inspiring glimpse of the human spirit's power to overcome tragedy and despair.
