'Aryan Papers’ reads more like an action book by describing my inner thoughts. While there are some depictions of the extreme cruelty, they are only a fraction of what I actually witnessed.
ATLANTA (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
Mankind is capable of extreme cruelty, which we notice throughout the years of history classes and current news. But Holocaust survivor George Dynin still believes hope can give one the strength to overcome the worst of circumstances.
Dynin is now sharing his unique perspective of surviving the Holocaust in his new memoir, “Aryan Papers.” In his memoir he shares how his family escaped to Lithuania from Poland and how he and his mother joined the Polish Underground, where she became a spy, providing information on the Germans whereabouts, and thereby sabotaging the Nazi’s and saving lives. Encompassing his father’s capture by the Soviets and deportation to Siberia, Dynin explains his struggle of being responsible for his family’s welfare at the age of 15.
“’Aryan Papers’ reads more like an action book by describing my inner thoughts,” said Dynin. “While there are some depictions of the extreme cruelty, they are only a fraction of what I actually witnessed.”
Through the eyes of a teenage boy, “Aryan Papers” documents how his family endured the atrocities of World War II, even explaining how they survived by acquiring false documents and becoming Polish aristocrats by changing one letter in their surname.
“With new identities, my mother, young sister and I traveled to Horodyszcze, Belarus,” said Dynin. “Through many powerful and thought-provoking episodes, ‘Aryan Papers’ shares stories of those harrowing days, including how my mother became a secretary and translator to the mayor of the town, a Nazi collaborator.”
