9780881250404: Worlds Torn Asunder

"...an important personal and historic document... Gracefully written... a triumph of the human spirit... a universal message." -- Prof. Emeritus Michael Kerestesi, Wayne State University 

More than a Holocaust survivor memoir. More than just a harrowing tale of survival and hope. What makes this story special is its unique three-dimensional depth.  A retired Rabbi and educator, the author masterfully weaves personal memoir into historical context, with a deep appreciation for Jewish lore and tradition.

Dov Beril Edelstein was Auschwitz inmate #A7868.  He lost both parents, both grandparents and 2 brothers in the holocaust. But he survived... a twisting journey of incredible physical, emotional and spiritual endurance.  

But readers of all stripes will also gain a special glimpse into the full richness of Jewish life in Hungary in the years leading up to the war. Jewish faith, customs, community and ethics not only sponsored hope for survivors like Edelstein, these values continue to inspire the forgiveness and tolerance which define the Jewish perspective on this still surreal period of history.

Originally published in the US and later in German by Bohlau Verlag Publishing,  Worlds Torn Asunder has also been used for over a decade as a text at various schools and universities in religion courses with titles like "The Quest for Wholeness."  This enduring memoir is celebrating its 27th year with the release of a new digital version.

From the Author:

I was born in the small village of Berek, Transilvania near the famous Chassidic city of Szatmar. I had three older brothers and a younger brother. The eldest, Anshel, the youngest, Shiele, our parents, and myself were deported to Auschwitz.

Only I survived the Holocaust.

Book Description Edelbee Enterprises, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A retired rabbi, educator, and lecturer, Rabbi Dov Edelstein s memoir - Worlds Torn Asunder - chronicles how faith and religious values helped him survive the Holocaust despite the harshest conditions, privations, and degradations. It is a forceful and compelling narrative that seeks to educate and speak out against the inhumanity that mankind is capable of perpetrating. Worlds Torn Asunder, which was also published in German, has been used as a textbook at various schools, including at the Department of Christianity at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. The school adopted it for ten consecutive years in a course for graduating seniors entitled The Quest for Wholeness. The Rabbi has shared his inspirational personal story and the book s message of tolerance with hundreds of mostly non-Jewish high school students and church audiences across the U.S. and in Canada. During these encounters the Rabbi opened eyes, minds, and hearts, and in the process left jaws agape with his riveting personal narrative of loss, determination, and recovery.
