Dayton, OH, September 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- "Béla’s Letters" by Jeff Ingber was chosen as Medalist Winner in the Autobiography / Biography / Memoir category of the 2016 New Apple Summer E-Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
"Béla’s Letters," a historical fiction novel spanning eight decades, revolves around the remarkable life of Béla Ingber, who was born before the onset of WWI in Munkács, a small city nestled in the Carpathian Mountains. The book tells of the struggles of Béla and his extended family to comprehend and prepare for the Holocaust, the implausible circumstances that the survivors endure before reuniting in the New World, and the crushing impact on them of their wartime experiences together with the feelings of guilt, hatred, fear, and abandonment that haunt them. At the core of the novel are the poignant letters and postcards that family members wrote to Béla, undeterred by the feasibility of delivery, which were his lifeline, even decades after the war ended.
