University of Lodz, thesis: Despite his accolades and success in the insurance industry, Kleinberg still maintains his agent licenses and certificates and serves an active client list. So far, the unique historical situation of two enemy countries attempting massive scale operations for the safety of their children - with similar ambitions but very different policies and outcomes - has not yet been sufficiently exploited. Participants will hear from children in an indirect way that allows the unencumbered expression of their individual experiences and concerns.
Despite his accolades and success in the insurance industry, Kleinberg still maintains his agent licenses and certificates and serves an active client list. He feels he cannot properly serve the agents his company contracts with unless he himself is in the field selling the same products. He enjoys writing, but he can also be found hustling handball games at the Jewish Community Center in Omaha or playing golf and has no plans to retire.

Books by Milton Mendel Kleinberg. Trivia About Memories of my Ch Although Mendel and his family were not placed in concentration camps like the ones in Poland and Germany, it does not mean that their life was any easier during this time. In Russia, Mendel experienced death, constant hunger and fear. His father abandoned him, his mother and two little brothers.
Mendel witnessed the deaths of both his brothers. He was constantly hungry and cold. His life was always in danger. He had to live away from his mother in an orphanage. I did not know a lot about the lives of Poland Jews who had to endure the Holocaust in Russia. It warms my heart to know that Mendel, now Milton, finally made it the United States. His memoir will ensure that his story is told. I recommend this book to all.

I felt that this book did an excellent job of portraying the barbarity of war and of the Holocaust through vivid imagery and narrative.
It became very clear throughout the course of the book the depths to which people could fall in times of desperation, so that an eight-year-old boy could end up in a situation where he could stab an adult man with a knife in order to save his friend. While at times the language wa I received this book for free from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. While at times the language was choppy or simplistic, the relationships and the characters came through very clearly, and when plot points were confusing it was obviously a reflection of the confusion of war and of uncertain times.
It was also very unusual for me to read a Holocaust memoir that did not take place primarily in concentration camps, but instead showed the experience that many other people went through during WWII as they were relocated from place to place, suffering disease and malnutrition and being constantly surrounded by death. As a necessary result, the occasional reflections on religion and ultimate purpose were very weighty. Mar 28, Glorianne Roccanova rated it really liked it.

It was interesting because we do not think of other camps like these in the reads about the holocaust. The bravery and intelligence of this young man as he manages to live in spite of horrors inflicted on him and his family is a testament to his will to live.

This book is about a Jewish man's experiences during WWII when he and his family are encouraged to cross the river in Poland to the Russian occupied side. Because of this, their lives were spared while so many of their fellow Jewish Poles were executed in the concentration camps.

Nov 13, Jane rated it really liked it. Kleinberg, a fellow Omahan, wanted his grandchildren to understand his childhood, so he wrote this book. He is Jewish, was born in Poland, and lived through the Holocaust. I don't want to give any more of the story away, but would encourage others to read it Oct 15, Kelsey Gordon rated it really liked it. This is a touching read, and made more so that the author wrote it to share his story with his kids and grandkids. This book is a different take on the Holocaust, in that the author was in Russia for the duration of the war.
It really showed a new side of the war to me. Miles Remer will officiate at all of the Speaker Series Services. Kabbalat Shabbat Service, 6 p. Kitchen kashering for Passover, 8 a.
