Summary"Sam Offen was born in Krakow, Poland. During the Nazi regime he suffered slave labor, ghetto confinement, and concentration camp horror. More than fifty members of his immediate and extended family were killed. And yet, despite the pain he has faced, Sam's story is one of triumph and hope. For years, Offen has shared his experiences with groups at schools, at universities, and at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, Michigan." —Back cover
