Seventy years ago Joe Rubinstein walked out of a Nazi concentration camp.

Until now, his story has been hidden from the world.

Shortly before dawn on a frigid morning in Radom, Poland, German soldiers forced twenty-one year-old Icek "Joe" Rubinsztejn onto a crowded, open-air truck. The next day, several around him were dead. From there, things got worse for young Joe-much worse.

Joe arrived at Auschwitz on April 30, 1942. Now, in his nineties, Joe reveals how he survived several of the most notorious concentration camps when so many others perished. His is a remarkable narrative-a unique story of endurance, courage and faith. Barefooted when he was seized by the Nazis, Joe became one of New York's leading shoe designers-working with companies whose shoes were sought after by First Ladies and movie stars alike.

Joe's story bears witness to the ultimate triumph of the human spirit. While the Nazis took everything else, they were unable to take his unassailable joy. Joe's story is one of discovering light in the darkest of places, an inspiration for us all.

What an honor to read Joe's life story. Often while reading, I had to remind myself this is a true story and not fiction! A soul who survived absolute hell, while never loosing faith or humanity. For myself, Joe answered one of my most difficult thoughts about God and life itself. I feel like a better person for reading his story. This read touched me like never before and I will never forget his story. He is who I will think of when I get unhappy with life, or even irritated by small things. I was so happy to see HE WON! A true hero. Very well written. Best Holocaust survivor story I have ever read.
