Holocaust Lumber is a collection of 30 short stories that capture the complexities and humanity of his parents. Told with unflinching honesty, these stories capture a world of lumber and love, a setting of sweetness and survival, a nightmare of guilt, and the lighthearted, absurd moments that are part of all families.
