"This unique collection's deeply moving stories by Holocaust survivors reveal how the bond with their companion animals intensified and deepened during that dark, horrific night of carnage, betrayal, and terror, providing solace, warmth and love. These heart-braking and heart-warming stories add a hitherto unexplored dimension to our necessary knowledge of the Holocaust and cast new light on the indestructible, soul-sustaining nature of the human-animal bond." -Aviva Cantor, author and v.p. of C.H.A.I. (Concern for Helping Animals in Israel)

The stories are engaging and reflective, giving animals lover pause. We will all hug our pets closely after reading these accounts!" -Gayle M. Irwin, author of "Sage's Big Adventure" and "Sage Learns to Listen"
