The Survivor

An amazing, untold story of the Holocaust, of survivor turned Nazi hunter.

This is one of the last great untold stories of the Holocaust. Josef Lewkowicz, the only one left alive in an extended family of 150, survived six concentration camps before becoming a Nazi hunter on his liberation. He brought to justice his greatest tormentor, the Butcher of Plaszow, Amon Goeth, the murderous SS camp Kommandant played by Ralph Fiennes in the film Schindler’s List. He also knew Oskar Schindler, responsible for saving many Jewish lives. He also rescued 600 orphaned children, hidden by doomed parents during the ghetto clearances in Poland, in a covert operation that took them to new lives in Israel. Josef is now 95, and spent decades raising his family in Montreal. He now lives in Jerusalem, after working as a diamond dealer in South America. This book, his testimony, captures the spirit, the soul, the neshama of the survivor.

 In the tradition of The Boy in the Woods and By Chance Alone, The Survivor shares an unbelievable yet true story of one man’s endurance and determination not only to survive the Holocaust but to bring to justice those who perpetrated great crimes against humanity.
