Overview

Stephen Nasser somehow dug deep within his soul to survive the brutal and inhumane treatment his captors inflicted on the Jews. He was the only one of his family to survive--but the memory of his brother's dying words compelled him to live. Stephen's account of the Holocaust, told in the refreshingly direct and optimistic language of a young boy, appeals to both younger audiences and his contemporaries. Written in a straightforward, narrative style, Nasser avoids the cloying or maudlin language that characterizes some stories of the Holocaust. Perhaps it's for that reason readers will find his book one they won't forget--and one they recommend to others as a "must read."

I have personally met Stephen Nasser and had the opportunity to talk with him. The man does not cease to amaze me. After surviving hell through the greatest human atrocity in history he does not fall victim to the demons of his past but has become a greater stronger man. His is a story not about pain and death but about life and the beauty of it.

It is impossible to imagine how an innocent young boy could dig deep enough into his heart and soul to survive the evil and inhuman Hitler regime. Mr. Nasser's book, MY BROTHER'S VOICE, is a vivid reminder of evil people doing evil deeds. It is also a story of survival and hope. We can learn a great deal from Mr. Nasser's book. We can see that history repeats itself and we can learn that we have the power and wisdom to stop the cycle of repetition.
