Eagle Point, OR, September 23, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Author Victoria Harnish Benson has released a downloadable version of her frankly inspirational book, To No Man’s Glory: A Child’s Journey From Holocaust To Healing. The book is based on the Holocaust experiences of her husband, Vincent Benson.
Mr. Benson, born Arturs Lejnieks, was 3 years old when Germany invaded Poland and the Baltics. A Jewish orphan living in Riga, Latvia, he was forced to flee into the woods and roam the land in the care of strangers for nearly 4 years. Repeatedly captured, rescued and recaptured, he was the only child to survive his prison camp. Possibly the youngest survivor of the Holocaust in Latvia, a country who lost all but 1 to 2% of her Jewish children.
Sent to America at eleven, he was faced with the struggle to overcome the emotional backlash of those traumatic years. Fifty years later, Mr. Benson published his story in an inspiring message of hope and faith.
