Summary, etc.:
"Martin Weigen was eleven when the Nazis invaded his hometown of Starachowice, Poland. He survived the death march from Auschwitz, imprisonment at Buchenwald, and the deaths of his family before his liberation at Dachau and the decision that changed the course of his life. He never spoke of it. Fifty years later, a surprise telephone call opens the door to Martin's past, sparking a series of events that reignited memories of courage, fear, impassible chance, harrowing escapes, and the unexpected friendship between a young Holocaust survivor and an African-American lieutenant. Witness For My Father, as told by the author, Martin's daughter, is a story of devastating loss, but also one of hope, heroism, and the triumph of human kindness."--Cover, page [4]
