This was one of the most horrible and saddest times in human history, but yes it's about celebrating what they've overcome and to watch the descendants of the most persecuted people on the face of the earth now a strong nation is a cause for celebration.

It is or was actually refering to the lives of the successful survivors of the holocaust in slovakia in 1953. The survivors were been celebrated because no one knew what they went through duing the holocaust period,despite the challenges they were profesionally perfect in science,literature,arts and business. There was an illutration image showing the survivors.

Thanks for the great review. The Holocaust is a very sad but important matter to talk about, I appreciate the choice of the author to focus on the survivor.

This looks historical and a bit boring, might just flip through.

Reality is what is painted that is why it is ideological and creativity makes it unique. Great articulation because that's where creativity emanates from.

Newcomers' Accomplishments II is an amazing book that brings out celebration in a not so very jovial beginning.
The review did the book great justice in showing everything it's about. Excellent review as always. :tiphat:

The book reviews gives one an opportunity to understand and know more about holocaust from another perspective. Its gives a positives and successful story of the transformation of those who escaped the holocaust. This book is a ''must read'' for the Jews and others who needs encouragement from the horrifying stories of holocaust. I therefore recommend strongly this book for everyone out there
