Love Brought Me Through The Holocaust: A Daughter's Memories
By Judith Koeppel Steel
A holocaust survivor book written by Cantor Judith Steel. She was born in Berlin at the beginning of WWII. Her family was Jewish, and escaped aboard the ship St Louis in 1939 when she was an infant, only to be turned away by Cuba and the US. The ship was returned to Europe. Her family disembarked in Belgium and was interred in Camp Gurs. Her father was able to sneak her out to a French Catholic family, who hid her during the war. She came to live in the US in 1946, sponsored by her Aunt and Uncle. Cantor Judith Steel is an Interfaith minister and an active speaker for various organizations as well as schools and many places of worship. She feels that she has the responsibility to tell her story of survival for the good of future generations.
