Into the Forest: A Holocaust Story of Survival, Triumph, and Love by Rebecca Frankel

We hope you’ll find these books remarkable and inspiring that you’d add to your to-read list!

Rebecca Frankel’s Into the Forest is a poignant and meticulously researched account of the Rabinowitz family’s astonishing survival during the Holocaust. Escaping from the Zhetel ghetto into the Białowieża Forest, Miriam, Morris, Tania, and Rochel Rabnowitz endured over two years of harrowing challenges. Frankel weaves historical facts with intimate first-hand accounts, creating a narrative that reads like a compelling novel.

The Rabinowitz family’s survival, against all odds, is a testament to their courage and resilience. Frankel skillfully explores their ordeal, from the extreme measures taken to evade capture to the constant threats of disease, hunger, and enemy forces. Despite their hardships, Miriam and Morris exhibited extraordinary kindness, taking risks to protect others in their community.

What sets this book apart is Frankel’s personal connection to the Rabinowitz sisters. As a close family friend, she had the privilege of hearing their stories first-hand, adding a layer of intimacy and authenticity to their story. The narrative captures not only the horrors of the Holocaust but also the moments of hope and human connection that emerged amid the chaos, as recounted by the sisters themselves.

Into the Forest is a powerful reminder of the strength of the human spirit and the importance of bearing witness to history. It is a story that inspires and compels readers to confront the unimaginable challenges faced by those who endured the Holocaust.

A compelling tribute to the indomitable spirit of those who survived the Holocaust, a narrative that underscores the importance of remembering and sharing stories of both tragedy and miracles amidst the devastation.
