Overview

What Papa Told Me, written by the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, is the story of Murray, a young Jewish boy from Poland whose courage and sheer will to live helped him survive eight different labor and concentration camps in the Holocaust, start a new life in America, and keep a family intact in the aftermath of his wife's suicide.

"What Papa Told Me" has been endorsed by Elie Wiesel, author of "Night," as well as the Yad Vashem museum in Jerusalem and recently won two honorable mention book awards from The 2011 Eric Hoffer Award and the 2011 New York Book Festival Award. What sets this Holocaust book apart from others is that it offers a fresh perspective of the Holocaust -- that of a third generation. A story of loss and despair, the book hinges on hope and survival.
