Story A Holocaust Memoir - Abram Korn, Edited by Joseph
Korn. The most important and meaningful work I had ever
done until that point in my life was the completion of my father's
autobiography, Abe's Story: A Holocaust Memoir, published by
Longstreet Press on April 11th, 1995, the 50th anniversary of Dad's
liberation from Buchenwald Concentration Camp.
My father, Abram Korn, survived World War II in two Nazi ghettos and at least eight concentration camps. Dad lost his entire family during the Holocaust, including his parents and his two little sisters. There are 35 extended family members on the cover of his book, and Dad was the only one to survive. He came through it all with dignity. Dad was one of the kindest and gentlest human beings I have ever known. My father is my hero.
Dad's story begins when his hometown of Lipno, Poland, is attacked on the first day of Word War II, Sept. 1, 1939. He and his family spend a year imprisoned in a ghetto until he escapes, never to see his family again. Over the next five years, he is imprisoned in another ghetto and in eight different concentration camps, until he is liberated from Buchenwald Concentration Camp in 1945. He then spends four years rebuilding his life in Germany, where he met my mother-to-be, Ellie Mueller. Dad & Mom married and moved to America in 1949, where they raised our family and fully realized the American Dream.
Dad's story is about life, not death. It's about hope, not despair. It touches the hearts of all who read it. It is perfect for use in middle and high schools. Abe's Story will soon be available in softback as well as hardback editions. Price: $14.00
