Even in Hell, There is Hope

Jerome Richfield 319

"Even in Hell, There is Hope" writes Dr. Henry Oster who was five years-old when Adolf Hitler took power in 1933. 

Even in Hell, There is Hope

His recently published book, The Kindness of the Hangman (Higgins Bay Press, 2014), tells this gripping tale of the 2,011 Jews who were rounded up by the Gestapo and deported from Cologne, Germany. Henry is the only one still alive to tell their story.  Dr. Oster will be speaking and signing copies of his book.  Click here to see the recent Los Angeles Times article on Dr. Oster.
