Beyond Trochenbrod

The Betty Gold Story

The sliver-thin silver lining of Holocaust denial is that deniers promote the subject of Nazi evil back to center stage where the Holocaust-ignorant might discover and never forget unspeakable things like how a whole village of five thousand Jewish civilians was machine gunned to death in rural Poland on August 11, 1942. Betty Gold would have been 5,001 but for the secret wall her father built and the survival skills she developed while hiding in a forest for many months that fall and winter. Intimate, mesmerizing, heartjarring, this short memoir will leave you cold to the touch but better for it.
