Support us by buying from the following:


This book is dedicated to the memory of my parents, Herschel and Ita Altus, my brothers, Yussel, Srulek and Leibel, my sisters, Chaia and Feigel, my uncle, Leibel Altus, my other relatives and friends from Ciechanow, Poland, and the millions of other innocent victims who were murdered in cold blood in Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

I am also dedicating this book to my brother Simon, cousin Irving, and the other prisoners who managed, by a combination of luck and cleverness, to survive those terrible years during which monstrous evil reigned supreme throughout much of Europe.

I offer my everlasting gratitude to the brave American soldiers who defeated Hitler and liberated from the camps those of us who survived the horrors of the Holocaust.
