“Angels in the Forest” (published by iUniverse) is the story of the author, Earl Greif who grew up on a small farm in Galicia, a region of Poland where his family was caught in the tentacles of the Nazi invasion and trapped in a ghetto. Grief and his little brother Lou hid in an oven to escape the massacre that wiped out all of his family and subsequently eluded capture by subsisting for months in a dense forest, passing as Gentiles and joining a Russian army hospital. Eventually they made their way to the United States, where Earl became a real estate developer and co-founded a Holocaust memorial.
Like Robert Graves’ “Good-Bye to All That,” an autobiography that traces the tragedies that occurred as a result of the First World War, Greif’s “Angels in the Forest” depicts the huge losses that come in the wake of war. Yet, Greif is also clear to paint a portrait of redemption, reciting his guiding mantra, “life goes on.”
Greif’s found success as a real estate developer in the U.S. provides a cheer-worthy and ironic conclusion to his gripping memoir. The fact that Greif now makes a living trading a commodity he was once stripped of is not lost on him. “Never forget,” says Greif. “Never forget.”
