    Ozarow. Memories of an extinct Jewish town - Hillel Adler

    Éditions Le Manuscrit / Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah - 2013

    One of the few survivors of Ozarow, Hillel Adler, born in 1920, sketches a loving, emotional portrait of life in his native village. He realistically but humorously depicts Jewish life in a Polish shtetl wiped out by the Nazis, breathing life into its people, their customs, their celebrations and the events that marked the passage of time. We can sense the poverty, anti-Semitism, spirituality, political trends and Jewish solidarity.

    Through a child’s and teenager’s eyes, he describes his family, friends and neighbors who died in the Holocaust.
