Cairns writer to share Holocaust survivor’s tale in new book

CAIRNS writer Barbara Miller has turned to the Holocaust and a tale of survival for her latest book.

If I survive: Nazi Germany and the Jews, 100-year-old Lena Goldstein’s Miracle Story is an account of Sydney-based Lena, one of the last living witnesses of the Holocaust.

Published by Amazon and rated its No 1 new release in Jewish Holocaust History, it will be in Lena’s hands by her 100th birthday on January 31.
