"George Topas' moving and probing narrative is an important contribution to Holocaust literature" - Elie Wiesel "The Iron Furnace is a profoundly moving account of faith, love, courage, and endurance. With his direct and deceptively simple style, George Topas convinces us that we're sharing the heartfelt recollections of an old and dear friend. This story - and this decent, unassuming hero - will leave an incredible impression on all readers" - Michael Medved "The Iron Furnace will greatly contribute to the deepening memory of the Holocaust. It reveals the indomitable spirit of those that lived in the world which was destroyed." - Rabbi Marvin Hier, Dean, Simon Wiesenthal Center "A searing tribute to one man's indomitable spirit to outlive his tormentors" - Canadian Jewish News "This chilling memoir effectively reminds us of the inhumanity with which people treated their fellow humans.'' - Library Journal

Topas was a Jewish teenager living in Poland when the Nazis invaded the country in 1939. He survived the horrors of the concentration camps by learning to live by his wits--including passing himself off as an "inventor" to work on a "secret weapon" that was never produced. His life was saved at the end of the war when Allied soldiers intercepted the camp's inmates and guards on the way to an execution site. Of Topas's immediate family, only one aunt and uncle and his grandmother, who migrated to the United States just before the war began, survived. This chilling memoir effectively reminds us of the inhumanity with which people treated their fellow humans. Recommended for YAs as well as for Holocaust collections.
