Review

I read this Jewish novel while I was reading other WWII history books. I tried to find references to the battles, and historic events referenced in this 'historic novel' to make a judgment on its historical accuracy. I found that each of the independent sources collaborated with the stories of the forest people, Warsaw uprising, Babi Yar, the explosions in Kiev and on and on. This may be a novel, but the stories are those of real people and the unbelievably harsh times they had to persevere to become 'The Remnant' - Jews that survived the Nazi's, the death camps, the politics of the day.

It is a stunning book - I recommend it highly. --Floyd, WWII History Buff

When you think of the stories of the Jews in WWII, you think of the death camps and you think of Germany. This is a Jewish novel, but the truth it speaks is terrible when discussing man's inhumanity to man, but also wonderful when it discusses how resilient of spirit the Jewish resistance really was. Amazing they survived what they did. Well done and highly recommended. --Sparkle Phillips, author

About the Author

Othniel J. Seiden, or Otti as he prefers being called, typically takes on an interesting historic subject and studies it to find the most fascinating storyline. When doing the research for 'The Remnant,' however, Otti found that it wasn t just one story, but the mixture of the stories of the survivors and their resistance work that really told the true story of the Free Jews of World War II and the part they played in bringing down the Third Reich. After researching the transcripts of the Nuremburg Trials and interviewing The Remnant or Jewish survivors of the holocaust; Otti was compelled to write their startling and remarkable stories of World War II while the remaining members of The Remnant were still alive. It is a stunning and compelling novel made of up the collection of stories of the Jews who were able to remain free and fight. Otti documents their escapes, their survival, their sacrifices, their suffering, their missions and their guerrilla warfare tactics against the Nazi occupation forces. Otti tells most of this story in the shadow of the atrocities of the now infamous Babi Yar ravine where it is thought that nearly a million people, Jews and non-Jews alike were massacred. Its existence was kept hidden for many years after the war by both the German and Russian interests. The brave few who escaped certain death here did so by acts of amazing bravery and sheer determination to live. Otti in this book, with these stories based on real people and historical transcripts, should dispel the myth that the Jewish people went to their deaths like sheep to slaughter... The Remnant and their incredible stories will erase that perception forever!

More About the Author

Books on WWII, Jewish Novel, and Health for Baby Boomers and Seniors are my main writing niches. I also have written many books for aspiring authors. My interest in the Jewish historical novel, most dealing with aspects of the holocaust comes from the fact that I was born in Austria in 1933, as Hitler and his Nazi party took power. Fortunately the passing of the Nuremburg anti-Jewish laws signaled my family to get out of Europe, which we did in 1933, surely saving all of us from the death that took 6,000,000 of our co-religionists.

Being a survivor, I've felt it an obligation to keep the fact of those horrible event alive - teaching through my writing. I've always felt that the best way to present history is through the historical novel, which can tell the stories of people who lived that history, and not just the raw facts.

Having my professional background in medicine I learned early on from my patients that one of their biggest complaints was they had difficulty understanding what their doctors and nurses were trying to tell them. This encouraged me to write medical self help book which translated medical and scientific language into easily read and understood lay language. As I have aged my non-fiction has gone more and more to illnesses and sexual matters that face Baby Boomers and Senior Citizens.

I do not have a literary background, though I did a year of graduate study at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, I graduated from the University of Missouri School of Medicine in 1964 and practiced for 44 years, first as a General Practitioner, and the last 30 as an E.R. doc. I began writing as an avocation to help me unwind after a long day in the E.R. My writing went these two directions, one Historical Fiction, and the other Medical Self-Help, my forte translating medical information into easily understood lay language.

My Historical Novels deal mainly with Judaica, Holocaust, and Biblical History. My books are both in print and on Amazon Kindle. Please enjoy! With over 50 books published by 10 different publishers I've been named Colorado's most prolific author. Google Othniel Seiden for more biographical information.

I was born not long after the end of World War II. Some of my earliest memories are of hiding under the table out on my Grandma's porch listening to my Dad and all of my uncles talk about their experiences during the war. World War II, and in particular the Holocaust, has always held a fascination (for want of a better word) for me. I've read countless books on the subject, watched dozens, perhaps hundreds, of hours of movies and documentaries, and even had a chance to see & hear about some of what happened first hand both here at home and living in Germany.

In general, I do not approve of fiction when it comes to the Holocaust. Let me tell you why. This is an event that must never be forgotten, an event that some (all too many) deny ever happened, even with many survivors and combatants on both sides still alive. So, when I hear about something like "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas", first presented as a real event, then later declared to be a complete fiction by the authors themselves, I cringe. It will not be long before all of the direct witnesses have passed. Even my generation, the ones who heard the stories first hand, who saw the tattoos, who have walked the remnants of the battlegrounds, are getting on up there. Before too long, there will be nothing to witness except words written in a book. Those words must be truth, not fantasy. Otherwise, in 25 or 30 or 40 years people can simply point to a stack of made up books and say "see - all fiction - never happened."

There are some cases, though, where a story is important to tell even if it must be told through the medium of fiction because there are no longer living witnesses - or perhaps never were.

This book is a must read for students interested in WWII. A good look at the dangers and day-to-day life of resistance behind enemy lines battling the elements as well as the enemy, and the amazing people who risked it all to help defeat the Nazis. These Jews did not meekly go to the gas chambers. You keep asking yourself what you would do in a similar situation.

I'll make this short. This book goes well beyond what Shindler's List was trying to convey. A powerful 'must read' story about how no matter how much hatred inflicted onto the Jews, it didn't take away their will to prevail. It's a great window into how perpetrators escape their own self hatred by persecuting others. And the irony of this is it doesn't work. You still have to deal with your own demons. This book is all about what really matters in this short time we spend on this planet

I was a child when the war started and have had an interest in the history of WWII. I have seen the clips of some of the terrible things that happend in Europe and Asia. This book has given me an insight that I never had before. When Solomon talked to Father Peter about how it was to be Jew in Christian society I was astounded. The bitterness expressed by Sol, his Rachel being killed, Ivan and Soacha being rounded up in a sweep with her being gassed in a gas van and Ivan being killed in an attempt to break out of a concentration camp, represent huge reasons for his bitterness. The events at Babi Yar are heartbreaking with the Jews not only dealing with the Germans but also the anti-semitic Ukrainians who got into the mix.

This is a hard read if you have any empathy or sympathy for people, not only Jews, but Gypsies,Communists, political prisoners, general populations of occupied countries were always at risk the the list goes on who were ruthlessly murdered by the Nazis. Reading of the horror that the Jews went through, I took away the reality of the incredible blessing of freedom that I enjoy.

Politicians, some of which have charisma, an ability to mesmerize, excite with their words are to be regarded with suspicion. To vote on the basis of excitement and charisma can have many unintended consequences as was the case with Hitler. This despot had it all figured out with a subsequent loss of freedoms and other horrific outcomes for millions.

Read this book, understand what the Jews have gone through for hundreds of years, and for the first time in my life I have really thought about the circumstances surrounding the gathering of the Jews in Palestine which became Israel in 1948. I have been to Israel, Lebanon and Syria. The Jews have made the desert bloom, Lebanon and Syria, no comparison. What the Jews needed was a gathering place, they have it and I am grateful.

Ive read over a hundred holocaust memoirs. This is by far one of my favourites. Id been looking for stories
About "Babi Yar" and not finding much untill I read this masterpiece. Not all Jews were shuffled off to death unknowingly. Some fought back. And fought back hard. This book is that gripping tale. I could hardly put it down!!

Very moving and extreemly well written book. I was moved to tears many times. I have to admit that I knew nothing about the Jewish resistance fighters until I read this book. A must read.
