"Needle in the Bone: How a Holocaust Survivor and Polish Resistance Fighter Beat the Odds and Found Each Other" - Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, author

Hear the astonishing stories of two Poles—a Holocaust survivor, Lou Frydman, and a Polish resistance fighter, Jarek Piekalkewicz. Both teenagers during World War II, Frydman and Piekalkewicz defied outrageous odds. They both lost everything and just about everyone in the war, and yet summoned the courage to create a new life. Based on her book, Needle in the Bone, Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg entwines the stories of these two survivors, drawing from extensive interviews with each, historical research, including the meaning of the Holocaust, the nature of good and evil, and how people persevere in the face of unbearable pain and loss.
