MEET THE AUTHOR
The Holocaust Remembered was presented by author Leo Rosner on March 16, 2008.
To most people, the Holocaust is an event in world history, or something they only read about in books or see dramatized on television. But for Leo Rosner, it is reality, truth, the ultimate nightmare of man’s inhumanity to man.
“I was stripped of all human rights and dignity. My name was taken away and replaced with a number. Left with no hope to survive, I had only the teachings and words of my mother, which gave me the strength to survive and bear witness to the entire world of the atrocities, killings, and destruction of the Jewish people.” – Leo Rosner, p. xv.
This is the personal account of the experiences and sufferings of Leo Rosner who, as a 13-year-old boy, was enslaved for three years in prisons, forced labor camps, and concentration camps during World War II.
He lived to tell a story never to be forgotten – that of a boy who strove to save his father’s life while endangering his own.
Against the orders of German S.S. men, Leo rushed to be by his father’s side. Time and again he managed to join his father in a new selection line – destination unknown.
Together, they managed to come out of that hell on earth as true survivors.
