An astonishing Holocaust Survival Novella inspired by true events.

"Award-winning attorney/author Mark M. Bello takes us back to attorney Zachary Blake's thirteenth birthday and the life-changing conversation he had with his maternal grandfather.


On the eve of Zachary's Bar Mitzvah, Max Lewin tells his grandson an incredible story of survival and escape from Auschwitz's death camp during World War II. Max shares the daily life of doing hard labor and encounters with evil never before imagined. Yet, it was a glimpse of hope with an unlikely alliance that led to a most daring and dangerous plan – escape from Auschwitz.


Max's story of survival and heroism inspires Zack's decision's about his future—he will help those less fortunate, as his grandfather and others had done, l'dor v'dor, from generation to generation.
