Living a Life that Matters Book Review

{This} is an enthralling tale from start to finish. Mr. Lesser clearly exemplifies courage and bravery, from his survival of the Holocaust to his pursuance of the American dream. It provides the explanations needed for students beginning to study World War II and the Holocaust.

As a Survivor of the Holocaust, Ben Lesser’s book, I found that A Life That Matters vividly brought me back to the brutal experiences we went through during the war years, and the trauma suffered over the losses of our beautiful families.

Your story helps us to “Remember” not only the pain man inflicted on man, but also man’s resilience and resistance, and finally, man’s determination to live—and to live “a life that matters,” as you so eloquently have shown.
