This book is dedicated to my father, Dr. Morris Weinblatt, whose tender love, profound insight, and courageous actions inspire me long after his death.
This book is also dedicated to the 6,000,000 Jews who perished in the Holocaust. They have been lost, but will never be forgotten.
About the Author Charles Weinblatt, a retired university administrator, is the author of published works of fiction and non-fiction.
Much of Weinblatt's maternal extended family perished in the Holocaust. Great grandparents, great aunts and uncles and many cousins disappeared into the void of Nazi annihilation. These included Rabbis, cantors, professors, and musicians. Family members who escaped from Europe now live in Argentina, Kenya, and the United States. The rest were never heard from again.
Portions of this novel were adapted from the memoirs of the author's mother, Clara Volk Weinblatt, a childhood victim of pogroms against her Russian Jewish village.
Weinblatt currently lives in Sylvania, Ohio with his wife, Fran. They have two grown children, Brian and Lauren. C
