The groupMoreIN LIGHT OF THIS & OTHER THINGS is a work of historical fiction closely based on the life of the authors maternal grandfather, Isidore Karten, a Jewish partisan who began a resistance group in the forests of Eastern Poland during WWII.

The group saved nearly 400 souls over the course of the war, rescuing people from the ghettos and running sabotage missions against enemy installations. At the books center is an ersatz village, built deep in the woods to protect not just the lives of its citizens, but the dignity the enemy sought to destroy. It is a story of remarkable strength and courage, not just in the face of death, but in the face of living when all has been lost.This book serves as a model for the future of Holocaust memorial and testimonial.

What becomes of the truth when there is no one left to tell it? Do we simply move on, or imbue old stories with new life? It is the hope of the author that more people tell the stories they have been left, sealing oral history into writing.
