No one could have guessed that the little boy of eight, a survivor of Buchenwald who could not read or write at the time of his miraculous release,
would someday visit with the Pope, Nelson Mandela, and several American presidents as Israel's Chief Rabbi and chairman of Yad Vashem.
A harrowing, miraculous, and moving account of this extraordinary and brilliant man, OUT OF THE DEPTHS: The Story of a Child of Buchenwald Who
Returned Home at Last (October 2011 / Sterling) tells the story of how Rabbi Israel Meir Lau survived against all odds in one of the Nazis' deadliest
concentration camps and grew up to become one of the most influential and inspiring religious leaders of Israel.
Always good to hear of those who survived. I could only imagine the horrors so many people had to endure during those times. That anyone could treat
human beings as they did during the holocaust is inexcusable!
