A Boy's Journey: From Nazi-Occupied Prague to Freedom in America
Author: Peter J. Stein
Peter Stein is a witness to history, a keeper of Holocaust memories, and a teller of its stories. He grew up the child of a Catholic mother and a Jewish father who was forced into forced labor and later disappeared. Nazi-occupied Prague was full of German soldiers everywhere, and Peter’s loved ones vanished in mystery and secret. As a 12-year-old immigrant in America, he searched for a new identity that left his past behind. But as Faulkner tells us, the past is never past. As a college professor, Stein was approached by a group of students enlisting his help with a project relating to the Holocaust, and his memories returned. A Boy’s Journey makes the past present and carries it into our future so we do not forget.
