About the Book
This book tells the story of Max Garcia, his family, his survival of Holocaust tortures, and his remarkable life today. It details Max’s triumph over the Nazis; however, this isn’t a story about the past. It is a testimony to an enduring belief in the future. Max not only survives the concentration camps, but begins to rebuild his life the moment the first American tank rolls in, working as an interpreter for his liberators.
