Between the Shadows is the amazing account of a little girl's survival on her own during WWII.

Born into a well-to-do Polish Jewish family, Frima Gleiser was forced to leave her home as the Nazis invaded her town. When Frima's father was arrested, her mother placed her with a family and took her older daughter to seek refuge in Romania. Two weeks later, Frima was out on the street. Using her ingenuity and resourcefulness to find hiding places, she never lost her will to go on. She endured the harsh Polish winter alone until she was reunited with her mother and sister, but never saw her father again.

Frima Gleiser Laub, a first-time author, shares her poignant memoir of faith, will, and determination.

This book includes a study guide for students.

From Dachau to D-Day   From Dachau to D-Day
A Memoir by Werner Kleeman with Elizabeth Uhlig

Published by Marble House Editions, paperback, 322 pages, August 2007, ISBN 0-9786745-3-7
For ages 16 and up.

About From Dachau to D-Day: As the 19-year old son of a prominent German Jewish family, Werner Kleeman was a victim of Kristallnacht. He saw the betrayal of his Jewish neighbors as fellow villagers gleefully destroyed their homes and property. He was sent to Dachau, but by the grace of a family friend, was released after six weeks, and left Germany for good.

As a new American, Kleeman was drafted and sent overseas to participate in the D-Day invasion. The end of the war brought him back to his own hometown, where he confronted the wreckage of the Jewish community. Denouncing those citizens who participated in Kristallnacht, Kleeman redeemed at least some of the suffering of fellow Jews.

This story spans a lifetime, reaching back before the war and beyond the war's end. It tells of how one individual used life's circumstances to contribute to the betterment of those around him.

About the book: "This is the story of My Great Grandma Clara, who was my dad's grandma. She lived so long ago that I never knew her, but I know about her from my own grandma..."

Clara grew up around the time of World War I, in a poor Jewish community in Russia. Family life was filled with hardships. Clara wanted to go to school, wear fashionable clothes and live a better life. And although there were many obstacles to this dream — the loss of her mother, soldiers who occupy the family's home, and a very difficult trip across Europe, Clara and her younger sister eventually made the long journey to America.
