In the Unlikeliest of Places

How Nachman Libeskind Survived the Nazis, Gulags, and Soviet Communism

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Annette Libeskind Berkovits and Daniel Libeskind

“Cinematically gripping (. . .) A moving tale that’s emotionally powerful and historically edifying.” –Kirkus Reviews

“The deeper I went into In the Unlikeliest of Places, the more I found my eyes tearing up—not from the suffering of victims of the Holocaust but from the beauty of the extraordinary courage and success of Nachman Libeskind (. . .) When he goes to Berlin to see the Jewish Museum, designed by his son, Daniel Libeskind, and when he takes up painting in his 80s, not as an old man’s busywork but with craft, power, verve, and a brilliant sense of color and composition—those victories moved me more than any recent book on the Holocaust and survival. That man! You’re going to love him and love the people who supported and believed in him, especially his wife, Dora, and his children—Annette and Daniel—and his grandchildren.” –John J. Clayton, author of Many Seconds into the Future (2014) and Mitzvah Man (2011)
