As the personal accounts contained in the Oscar-nominated documentary film The Long Way Home demonstrate, the battle to rebuild lives and human dignity continued long after the Allies victory. The tumultuous years between 1945 and 1948, from liberation to the creation of the state of Israel, epitomized the challenges Holocaust survivors faced in re-creating their identity from the remnants of their destroyed world. Produced by Rabbi Marvin Hier and Richard Trank and written and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris, this powerful film is narrated by Morgan Freeman and features the voices of Edward Asner, Sean Astin, Martin Landau, Miriam Margolyes, David Paymer, Nina Siemaszko, Helen Slater, and Michael York.About the Book: Edited by writer/director Mark Jonathan Harris, this book serves as both a companion piece to the Oscar-nominated documentary The Long Way Home and an independent resource for Holocaust study.

Like the film, the book is a compilation of interviews—personal accounts by Holocaust survivors of the challenges they faced once the nightmare of the concentration and death camps ended. After the Allied victory, the survivors of the camps were left to pick up the pieces of their destroyed world and rebuild the lives that the Nazis had taken from them.

Here they share their memories—still strikingly fresh after all theseyears—with a powerful openness not easily forgotten.
