Titles By Yoseph Komem
Joseph and Yitzhak are two young brothers, hiding with their family under fake Christian identities in the Aryan section of a city in Poland during the dark days of the Holocaust.
The two brothers, like their parents, know that their lives are in constant danger and that even the smallest mistake may expose their true identities, leading them to a painful death.
The small family will do everything in its power to survive, and they are lucky to receive assistance from their courageous gentile friends. But their lives outside the ghetto become increasingly difficult and complex with every passing day…
Before their eyes lies one goal only — the inconceivable struggle to stay alive against all odds.
Courage and Grace is a chilling and inspiring story that will leave you riveted to your seat, flood you with heartbreaking emotions and, at the same time, fill you with enormous hope for a better future.
