The Magician of Auschwitz

I am so excited to announce the publication of my new book, The Magician of Auschwitz, another book with Second Story Press. This is my first picture book and the illustrations are by the remarkable Gillian Newland. I always say that every story about the Holocaust that I write is important. But this one took my breath away when I first learned about it. It’s based on the true story of Werner Reich who was befriended by a famous magician while imprisoned in the Auschwitz concentration camp. You will learn about he gift of magic and friendship that Werner received. And you will see photographs of Werner, then and now, along with photographs of the real magician. Here’s a link to the book trailer. Enjoy!watch?v=LS3653XtTQI
