A Jewish family, victimized by anti-Semitism in Poland and Germany, flees to Minsk, Byelorussia and eventually to the Minsk forests when the Soviet Union is invaded by Nazi Germany in World War II. They become Jewish partisan fighters, and in an unusual collaboration with other Jews, a Polish-Jewish World War I veteran, a Byelorussian Christian, and two Russian partisan leaders, they join forces to wreak havoc behind Nazi lines.
The author hopes that A Jewish Story will help the reader to better comprehend the European Jewish experience including two world wars, learn about the geopolitical factors that resulted in the rise of Adolph Hitler and his quest to control Europe and destroy Europe's Jews, and allow those who hear fanatical leaders making modern day threats believe and take to heart the famous saying of George Santayana, "Those that cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
