Book Description

Oct. 1 2007
A combination of poetry and expressionistic paintings portray the heartbreaking and hard-fought life as well as the burial rituals after the death of Yoel Schneiderman in this innovative biography. Following his narrow escape from the Holocaust, Yoel's life changed inextricably. A far cry from the young, vibrant man who grew up in Warsaw, Yoel became hopeless and helplessly destructive if even the smallest detail of his life was out of place. Yet Yoel kept his passion for learning and exploring the unknown to his dying day.
