Abstract:

"How does a young person maintain resilience and humanity in the face of vicious racism, unspeakable violence and unfolding genocide? This is the story of Holocaust Survivor Ben Stern, as he explores the question that haunts: how did he emerge from overwhelming physical pain and psychological terror, determined to reject violence, and remain dedicated to a life of courage, kindness and hope? After 2 ghettos, 9 concentration camps, and 2 death marches in Nazi Europe, Ben builds a new life in the U.S. -- only to face American Nazis and their plan to march in his adopted hometown, Skokie, Illinois, 30 years later. Ben stands up, speaks out and sparks a fierce public battle over Hate Speech. Despite repeated death threats and even buying a gun, Ben rejects vengeance. He defies many who said, "Stay home", and builds huge national support. In the end, Ben won - the Nazi march was cancelled. Ben -- the mystery and wonder of his life and his story, an astounding and cautionary tale -- ignites conversation and inspires commitment to action for social justice -- today. And a new generation gets it."--Publisher's website.
