    I'm by no means a WWII/Holocaust scholar, but I've done some deep dives in research for writing and now in training to be an outreach educator for Holocaust History. Even so, this provided new-to-me valuable information about historic events and the intricacies of various players in th...

    As a historian, it's always refreshing to read a book that teaches me something new--especially about a topic I've studied quite a bit. Koch's work recounts the tale of a Jewish male teenager living in exile in Paris, who decided to revenge the deportation of his family and 12,000 othe...
