    I’m looking for a holocaust book that i read approximately 2 years ago. I think it was a blue book, and seemed old. I WISH I wrote down the name of it when i read it because I am DESPERATE to read it again but I don’t remember what it’s called.
    In the book, there is a story about how the man injured himself very badly, he recalls how it was amazing hashgacha, because of the injury he was saved from a selection.
    He then writes pesukim from nishmas to thank Hashem for the neis. (This is the part that stands out in my mind)
    Does ANYONE know what book this Is?
    I would be so grateful if someone could help me.

    The Drowned And The Saved
    By Primo Levi

    Levi had scarlett fever, so he didn’t go on the death march.

    (This book is orange though, not blue)

    Was this Holocaust book an anthology with multiple stories? Or was it a memoir from one male survivor?

    So far, I listed books written by survivors.

    What about an anthology, such as:

    Hasidic Tales of the Holocaust
    edited by Yaffa Eliach

    (From taking a glance at the Google eBooks Preview online, it looks like there are multiple survivor stories in this anthology book, with leanings toward Yiddishkeit and thanking HKBH for survival)

    It was a memoir, not an anthology.
    I really appreciate all your suggestions. I’ve been looking into them

    The Yaffa Eliach book is wonderful (as most of hers are). Some of the stories are downright funny. It’s well worth the money.
