Surviving the Holocaust
When Benjamin First Met Moshe
When liberation finally came Benjamin was so exhausted and malnourished that he simply collapsed. He describes waking up two months later in St. Ottilien, a monastery in Germany that had been made into a make-shift hospital. There he met another young holocaust survivor, Moshe Opatovski who, like him, had lost everything in the Holocaust.
