Description

A thorough collection and examination of stories and perspectives from the Holocaust-related books of British Columbia authors, including nearly 100 black and white photographs.

Holocaust witnesses will soon cease to exist. As Tolstoy famously put it, what is to be done? One answer is Out of Hiding, a cross-section of stories collected from one region of the globe, British Columbia, Canada, examining 85 authors and 160 books.

Out of Hiding is both inspiring and chilling. The outstanding characters include the heroic whistleblower, Rudolf Vrba, credited by historian Sir Martin Gilbert with saving at least 100,000 lives, as well as Robbie Waisman, likely the only person ever to sneak his way into a concentration camp twice. This wide-ranging collection also features an afterword by Yosef Wosk and is dedicated to Dutch-born survivor Robert Krell, the MLK of Holocaust education in Canada.

Illustrated and profoundly educational, this patchwork quilt of memory and history belongs in every British Columbia household if the Holocaust is not to be forgotten, under-estimated or disregarded.
