Product Description

Product Description

“Here There Is No Why” was the infamous Dr. Joseph Mengele’s answer to Roma, the author, and to millions of Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
Written to fulfill a promise made in the darkest moment of human history, this simple and eloquent story is unique in that it spans the geography of the Nazi’s Final Solution.

Rachel (Roma in Polish), the teenage daughter of a journalist, relays to us the experiences of a schoolgirl and her classmates under the German occupied Warsaw Ghetto. She is a witness and participant in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. After the Nazis smoke her out of hiding, she bravely faces the reality of the gas chambers and concentration camps in Poland and Germany.

Originally written in Polish, this is an eloquent and unforgettable account of survival.

About the Author

Rachel Roth has spoken in English and Hebrew before countless audiences of children and adults, in schools, universities, and synagogues as well as at the U.S. Department of State. She divides her time between New York City and Tel Aviv. For more information visit www.herethereisnowhy.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 13 July 2013

I have read a few books on this subject now and this is one of the best. I still find it very difficult to comprehend what these people had to go through at the hands of the Nazis, in this book Roma tells her story of survival which left me in tears on more than one occasion. God bless you and your family.

This should be required reading in schools. Rachel is inspiring, and her story, together with pictures makes complete sense of the motto "Lest we forget"
