Jack Glotzer. I Survived the Holocaust Against All Odds. A Unique and Unforgettable Story of a Struggle for Life
Jack Glotzer was born into a family of assimilated Jews in Rohatyn in early 1925. He was the eldest of three children, part of a large family that included his parents, uncles, aunts, and five cousins who lived together. Between the ages of 16 and 19, Jack witnessed the murder of almost the entire Jewish community of his hometown by the Nazi occupiers and their accomplices. The memoir covers Jack’s life in Europe from 1925 to 1949. At the insistence of his wife and relatives, more than 50 years after the events, Jack gathered and wrote down his memories. Along with numerous photographs, a hand-drawn family tree, and his personal memory map of the area, Jack’s memoir is one of the few remarkably detailed accounts of the life, death, and revival of Rohatyn Jews around the time of World War II.
This memoir is published as a bilingual (Ukrainian - English) edition for the first time and will be interesting for a wide readership.
