In May 1998 I received an email from Bruce Reisch, informing me that his 88-year-old cousin, Mendel Halpern, had written two stories about the Holocaust and asking if we would like to publish them on the Yizkor Book web site. He mentioned that Mr. Halpern had been prompted to write these stories after reading an article by Elie Wiesel a short time before. One story that Mr. Halpern tells is about how his father survived the brutal conditions in Transnistria while one of his children perished; the other is about how a German officer saved him. Both are remarkable reminiscences from a survivor written more than 50 years after the events. Mr. Halpern's daughter translated the stories from German into English.
