Gihon River Press

Publisher info

Gihon River Press publishes books about the Holocaust. To teach about the past helps shape the future. World War II and The Holocaust have been over for more than sixty years. An entire generation must learn about the horror and destruction the Nazis rained down over an entire world. Survivors are becoming fewer with each passing day. I believe there are many stories of bravery and heroism among Holocaust survivors still to be told. It is my intention to publish memoirs and biographies by and about Holocaust survivors, specifically stories of people who saved or were saved by others, both Jews and non-Jews alike.
