The Lekhtmans were mar-
ried in 1973, and in 1974,
both families again applied
for exit visas. The younger
Lekhtmans were refused. The
parents left for Israel, and are
now residents of Kiryat Yam.
Maya was born just a month

Israel. Meanwhile, her father
has lost his job and he has
been unemployed since mak-

This book will remain for ages
to come:'*

*Simon Wiesenthal•

(Renowned Nazi hunter,
Director of Jewish Documentation Center)

"I read the book in a single day; I found it
so compelling it was hard to put down. A
picture is drawn of a man who managed to
stay human amidst inhumanity....We should
be glad such a detailed account of a true
survivor...will remain for ages to come."

Claude Lanzrnann:

(Creator of Shoah)

"An adventure...almost novelesque in the
extraordinary succession of miracles which
enable the young man to remain among the
living so as to eventually tell his story forty
years later with Voltairesque ferocity and
often sheer and invigorating joy.
"From one ordeal to another, outwitting
death time after time, Henry Orenstein, an
intelligent, soberly pessimistic Candide, is
possessed by a will to live so prodigious that
he seems able to maintain his spirit while
overcoming the most improbable odds."

Menachem Begin:

(Former Prime Minister of Israel)

"...An important contribution to bring out the
facts about the cruelty of Nazi Germany, of the
heroic efforts for the survival of our brethren."

Nathan Perlmutter:

(Former National Director,
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith)

"Riveting. Because the book is innocent of
the affectations and devices of fiction, it is
so overwhelming an experience that half a
century later you are there, experiencing the
fears and, remarkably, experiencing the will
to live. Orenstein prevails as did Jewry and,
reading him, we do too."

Lucy S. Dawidowicz:


of The War Against the Jews)

"This is a stirring account of a struggle for
life against all odds. Once you begin this
book, you won't be able to put it down."

Allan A. Ryan, Jr.:

(Former director of the Office of Special Investigations
of the Justice Department)

"I Shall Live is a poignant and deeply moving
testament to the human spirit, and to fero-
cious courage in the face of hopelessness...
No reader can be left untouched by it."
