CHOOSING A COLLEGE CAN BE
LIKE GOING ON BLIND DATE...

ative writing at the University of
British Columbia.
In The Old Brown Suitcase,
she addresses a teen's problem of
immigration: peers and language,
parents with a different culture,
religious and ethnic identity,
memories of the past.
It was May 14, 1948, and Is-
rael was celebrating its forth-
coming independence. We all
huddled over the radio to hear the
news.
There were only two families in
the apartment, yet our living room
seemed to be filled with people. I
felt the presence of shadows from
the (Warsaw) Ghetto hovering
about, listening. It felt as if all of
them had gathered here with us.
Grandfather, Mrs. Solomon, Sal-
lye, the young teachers, Hala and
Fela; and behind them, all the
people who died in the concen-
tration camps and on typhus-rid-
den streets of the Ghetto.

I

wo new books focus on the
Holocaust, but their mes-
sages are not ones of de-
spair.
In Against All Hope: Resis-
tance in the Nazi Concentra-
tion Camps (Paragon House),
Hermann Langbein tells the sto-
ry of resistance at Auschwitz —
the sabotages, the escapes and
the uprisings.
Himself a prisoner and a

leader of resistance at Auschwitz,
Mr. Langbein writes of the polit-
ical prisoners, the Jews, the con-
victed criminals, the Gypsies and
the Jehovah's Witnesses who
united to fight the Nazis.
"In all camps, many people
who were subject to boundless
terror, with no hope of help from
the outside, did try to resist and
were not discouraged by repeat-
ed disappointments," Mr. Lang-
bein says. "The fact that there
was such resistance is convinc-
ing proof that while an inhuman
regime can murder people, it can-
not completely stamp out human
impulses on the part of those al-
lowed to live."
In Heroes of the Holocaust
(Londonbooks, Miami, Fla.),
Arnold Geier writes of the men
and women who, in unthinkable
times, performed remarkable,
equally incomprehensible, acts of
courage.
Among those of whom he
writes: the German general who
saved a Jewish family; the two
brothers who, after years of sep-
aration, meet in Dachau and help
each other survive; the ship cap-
tain who dumps his cargo to
make room for 600 Jews.
Mr. Geier was born and raised
in Germany and served in the
U.S. Army's counterintelligence
branch during World War II. ❑
