With a passion for Holocaust education, author and public high school teacher, Amy McDonald, with Holocaust survivor, Max Steinmetz, provide a factual, yet gripping emotional account of one survivor amidst the enormous and complex history of the Holocaust.
Amy McDonald has written a unique memoir that encompasses two stories in one: the moving account of Holocaust survivor Max Steinmetz’s survival and her own journey to research and document his story and to write it for him, her students, and posterity. It is an authentic, powerful narrative that contributes a much-needed fresh perspective to the crowded field of Holocaust memoirs.
