"If the premise of "From Ashes to Healing" is true, then the pain and suffering of those who died in the Holocaust still throbs as significant psychic pain; even though the souls of these former victims have reincarnated into new bodies and new lives... Perhaps what was sown or experienced in past lives can influence future lives. At the very least, it gives us some food for thought. -- Donna Kenworthy, Southeastern Virginia Jewish News, February 28, 1997
"In this wonderful book, Rabbi Gershom and his fourteen fellow storytellers express the kind of unconditional love that can heal the soul memories of past lives, the anguish of those who continue to suffer in their present life... I wholeheartedly recommend this book." -- Brad Steiger, from the Preface
"The remarkable and multi-dimensional stories in "From Ashes to Healing" exude a most satisying sense of spiritual intimacy, as if touching the very threads out of which the cloth of soul is woven.' -- Amy Shapiro, Journal of Regression Therapy, December 1996
"These personal stories, together with Rabbi Gershom's own thoughts on Hitler, and whether or not he has repented in the afterlife, and Edgar Cayce's views on the Holocaust make this essential reading for everyone concerned about life, death, and man's inhumanity to man. And, of course, forgiveness." -- Roy Stemman
From the Back Cover
In Beyond the Ashes, the author presented compelling evidence that people living today had died in past lives during the Holocaust. Now, in From Ashes to Healing, he brings together fourteen gripping testimonies of people who have found extraordinary healing through these experiences. Some of the amazing stories contained in this book tell of a Jewish woman who remembers the souls of her people in the afterlife, a Canadian goat farmer who located a clock from a past-life flashback, and a Swedish woman who actually confirmed her memories by visiting the site of Buchenwald. The author shares his personal account of how working with these cases enabled him to find karmic closure about the Holocaust and move from ashes to healing. The book also contains chapters on the concept of "Jewish soul," the possible fate of Hitler in the afterlife, and prophecies by Edgar Cayce concerning the Jews during World War II.
