Summary"Dr. Robert O. Fisch is an eminent pediatrician and visual artist, as well as Holocaust survivor. Light from the Yellow Star offers a narrative of his experience in a Nazi concentration camp through [paintings and prose]. The text exudes an optimism and hopefulness about life, even though it recounts a personal story of terrible suffering. Quotations throughout the text are liberal translations from the gravestones in the memorial concentration camp cemetery in Budapest where the author's father, a victim of the camps, is buried." —Page [40]
