The extraordinary story of a child of Buchenwald who returned home at last, with forewords by Shimon Peres and Elie Wiesel.  No one could have believed that the little boy of eight, who miraculously survived a “men’s” camp and could not read or write at the time of liberation, would someday meet two popes, the Queen of England, Nelson Mandela, Fidel Castro, Ronald Reagan, and many others as one of the world’s most influential and inspiring religious leaders.  Here is in his own words is the moving story of how he endured against incredible odds to become Israel’s Chief Rabbi and chairman of Yad Vashem.
