A DOUBLE INSPIRATION,
This review is from: Finding Dr. Schatz: The Discovery of Streptomycin and A Life it Saved (Paperback)Finding Dr. Schatz is an easy to read but facinating book. It tells the story of how any bright student or subordinate scientist could be cheated out of recognition of his work. The total story of Dr. Shatz inspired me for the resulting lives saved by his discovery. The story of his youth and the farm experiences were most enlightening.
Mis Auerbach's story is one of courage, survival, and surprising optimism. She not only survived the horrors of the camps but survived the tuberculosis attacks. The later cure from the tuberculosis in the U.S and her finding that Dr.Albert Schatz was the reason she recoverd makes an excitng and inspiring tale.
This should be required reading by students. It is an easy and inspiring read.
