In July of 1943, five people out of 20,000 survived the liquidation of the Glembokoye ghetto - Sol & Luba Kotz were two of them. Their infant son, David would have been a survivor, as well, had he not been shot through the cheek by the Nazis as his father ran with him in his arms. This is only a part of this couple's extraordinary story. In a time of comic book heroes, this true story of love, sacrifice & courage is powerful, rare & epic. It is filled with miraculous events that demonstrate the power of the human spirit to rise above tragedy & thrive. It is movie worthy.

I read the book Saturday and thought it was wonderful. Not only was it so well written but I learned so much. It is the first book about the Holocaust that I could get through without being so sick afterwards. Your parents were incredibly brave people and I so admire their courage and spirit. I brought a copy to my son and urged him to read the book. I need to buy more.

I finished your book and it is SO Good!! It is unbelievable what your parents went through and I love the way their story is told.

"Zalman Ber" is a small book that makes a big impact. Written in a voice emerging from one of the most shameful and violent periods in human history, Zalman Ber lingers. I could easily carry this story with me for a lifetime, inspired by it's example of the resiliency of the human spirit. It makes me want to be a better person than I have been."
