Through his writing and his appearances nationwide, Joseph Freeman has shared his story of survival during the Holocaust. Here in Kingdom of Night, Joseph Freeman tells the story of his wife Helen's survival in labor and concentration camps in Nazi-occupied Poland during W.W.II. As Michael Berenbaum writes in the book's Foreword, Surely we who read her story must be grateful for all that she shared and grateful again to her husband Joseph? who brings Chaiale's [Helen's] story to the printed page where it will long endure. By telling the before and during, she has enriched the after and deepened the meaning of survival. Kingdom of Night is a touching memoir of innocence lost, the enduring power of faith, and a call to a new generation to bear witness to the atrocities of the past so that they may be empowered to respond to injustice.
