An important work of history. A vital book of hashkafah.
Our gedolim have made it clear that we owe it to ourselves, to the generation that suffered under Nazi brutality and, perhaps most of all, to future generations, to study the Holocaust through the prism of Torah and emunah. Written by a renowned educator, Tragedy and Rebirth gives us the tools to begin to deal with the issues, and, even more important, the questions that come up when we learn about the Holocaust.
Tragedy and Rebirth includes chapters on:
- Historical background of the Holocaust
- Searching for hashgachah, Divine Providence, in a time of concealment
- Spiritual resistance
- Hatzalah – rescue activities
- Dealing with questions about the Holocaust
- The miracle of Jewish survival and the rebuilding
Every chapter includes excerpts from important books on the subject, including many eyewitness accounts, a recommended reading list for further study.
