In a proud affirmation, “Ich bin ein Jude” – I am a Jew -- journalist and poet Herb Brin retraces the train routes over which boxcars transported millions of Jews to their bitter fate during the Holocaust. Boarding in Istanbul in 1978, Herb travels through Greece, Yugoslavia, and Austria, then onward to Poland, where he visits the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Majdanek.
