  1. Jacob’s Courage (2007, Mazo Publishers) is a tender coming of age love story of two young adults living in Salzburg at the time when the Nazi war machine enters Austria. This historical novel presents accurate scenes and situations of Jews in ghettos and concentration camps, with particular attention to Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. It explores the dazzling beauty of passionate love, powerful faith and enduring bravery in a lurid world where the innocent are brutally murdered. From desperate despair, to unforgettable moments of chaste beauty, Jacob’s Courage examines a constellation of emotions during a time of incomprehensible brutality.

    Jacob’s Courage is required reading for high school students in the US and has been the topic of high holy day sermons by rabbis. This book represents a compelling way to learn about the Shoah.
