Zalman Ber’s Story: A Book Signing with Lisa Kotz Mishler

Zalman Ber’s Story is told in his own voice by author Lisa Kotz Mishler, a powerful addition to the historical recounting of World War II. Together, he and his wife Luba, survived the Holocaust. A story about love, war, heroism, and miracles, as told by Mishler deserves to be experienced and honored.

Read an interview with Lisa Mishler on the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/58a75f63e4b026a89a7a2aba

“Lisa Mishler’s efforts resulted in the publication of Zalman Ber: The True Story of the Man the Nazis Could Not Kill. The book captures how, her parents, Sol and Luba survived the Nazi liquidation of a million and a half Jews in Poland in the western part of Russia, in mass killings in the ghettos, in places where they were born and in the concentration camps.”
