Kiev - 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 World War II.
In this stunning and compelling historical novel about the Hebrew-faithful who managed-against all odds to remain free and fight, Seiden documents their survival, their suffering, their missions and their guerrilla warfare tactics against the Nazi 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."
