Disguised as a gentile, young Moshe, a yeshiva bochur from a locally well known family, wilily managed to repeatedly evade the nazis, either by hiding or disguised as a gentile.
This book leaves one spellbound, as Mr. Katz's steel determination in the midst of unmitigated hell is fatefully tested.
While daily walking a tightrope for his own survival, the author bravely assisted in the rescue of numerous others. Every day a new story... a new challenge... a new opportunity...
While on the run for his life, he risked it to save others.
The author's parents and one brother were murdered in concentration camps (may G-d avenge their killings), while the remainder of his large family, nine siblings- "Nine Out of Ten"- survived; against all odds and in varied ways.
One day at war's end, Mr. Katz sees two filthy, anemic looking men, sitting on the front steps of his apartment. Altruistically, he offers the concentration camp survivors some nourishment. One man points to the other, and asks Moshe if he recognizes him. Moshe had been unknowingly, feeding his own brother- what was left of him.
The book continues onto post-war, where, in different parts of the world: nine orphans of the holocaust heroically rebuilt their tattered lives; the penultimate revenge against a protagonists that sought their complete annihilation.
Dr. Katz came to America; married; had children; prospered in business; built a vibrant jewish community (Lawrence, N.Y.); and wrote a book for his many grandchildren- and the rest of the public.
Dr. Katz's moving story of his family will leave you, sad in its night, hopeful in its day.
