New Book, WALK FORWARD, Uncovers Holocaust-Related Hidden Secrets
On the 74th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, German born Rosa Raskin describes her 50 year search for her lost sister.
Cleveland, Ohio – November 9, 2012 – Fulfilling the promise made to her father, Rosa Raskin tells the story of her immigrant family and her father’s hope to find his lost child. The purpose of the book, WALK FORWARD, is to continue to uncover information about her older sister, Eugenia Chimowicz, a blond-haired, nine-year-old girl last documented alive in concentration camp Stutthof on September 3, 1944.
Using letters from a newly-found cousin verifying the stories young Rosie heard as a child, she details the history of the family, including events before, during, and after the Holocaust. Jewish family members are caught in a hellish spider's web as the "last 500." As pawns in the chess game between Hitler's assistants, they survive the Lodz Ghetto, Auschwitz, and Stutthof, the last place where two young mothers and their four children were seen alive. Born in Germany after the Holocaust, Rosie describes the courage of her mother, Louise, who enabled the family to continue forward in the complicated journey to the United States as displaced persons.
WALK FORWARD is available as an ebook ($0.99) and paperback ($8.99) on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Walk-Forward-ebook/dp/B009H6Y7AC and at Createspace.com ($8.99) at http://www.CreateSpace.com/4015278.
