For anyone who doubts the utter catastrophe of the Holocaust ever happened, this book just might be a tonic for that. Working on four themes - doubting God even existed during the Shoah, the events becoming an integral part of Jewish identity, making sure no one ever forgets the tragedy, and working to change the world for the better - 88 personalities, some quite familiar to most, others not, tell the stories of their parents and grandparents, among the last survivors of this totally needless aspect of WWII. Some of the stories will move you, others will shock you. But it will no doubt make a Jewish person take pride in their faith, and a Gentile realize how important it is to stand on guard for God's chosen people. To deny the Holocaust is to deny Jews their identity, which is why so many free world countries make such denial an exception to free speech laws ... which I think is the right approach to it.
