To Tell Our Stories: Holocaust Survivors of Southern Arizona

Translations by Richard Fenwick and Raisa Moroz

Original book edited by Raisa Moroz and Richard Fenwick


During World War II's Nazi onslaught, six million Jews were systematically and brutally killed. Yet millions survived, their lives altered permanently by the terrors they faced. After the war, many left long-established homes to settle in Israel and the United States, hoping to find renewal. These are the stories of survivors who made Southern Arizona their home. Each is an intimate slice of the Holocaust as it occurred throughout Europe and the Soviet Union, and each story is a dedication to loved ones and friends lost and brutalized during a portion of history that has since defined 20th century history and modern-day genocide.

Presented as small vignettes of memories, you'll read the survivors own words as they recall their lives as they navigated the treacherous paths of World War II. Of particular interest here are the inclusion of Holocaust Survivors from the former-Soviet Union, whose stories often include the arduous journey east from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, and the subsequent harshness of life in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Siberia.
