Jewish - The Remnant - The Jewish Resistance in WWII
After researching the transcripts of the trials of the Nazis at Nuremburg and interviewing 'The Remnant' or Jewish survivors of the holocaust, many still living in Israel; Othniel Seiden was compelled to write their startling and remarkable stories of WWII.
In this stunning and compelling novel about the Hebrew-faithful who managed-against all odds to remain free and fight, Seiden documents their survival, their suffering, their resistance missions and their guerrilla warfare tactics against the Nazi occupation forces.
Also, well documented, the tragedy of Kiev and now infamous ravine of Babi Yar where it is thought that nearly a million people, Jews and non-Jews alike were massacred. These brave few escaped the certain death of their co-religionists by acts of bravery and sheer determination to live. The myth that the Jewish people "went to their deaths like sheep to slaughter. . ." is put to rest forever in the stories of "The Remnant."
Jewish - Seed of Avraham - A 4000 year history of The Jewish Family
The miracle of its survival was predicted - assured.
The written history of the House of Avraham has been born out by the pick and shovel of 20th century archaeology. To doubt its validity in the face of all the evidence is foolishness. But maybe I'm mistaken for perhaps the family of fools is even older than the House of Avraham.
Like every family, the House of Avraham is a mixed lot. There have always been a few who saw little value in the birthright - tried denying it - gave it up - but seldom with success or to their own benefit. Others faced agony, torture, death - rather than give it up. Those who survived hopefully found their reward; those who perished - who knows what prize awaited them for their sufferings. Such are the things faith is made of.
It was predicted. It has come to pass.
