Publishers Description "As I hung up the phone, the enormity of what had just been given to me seemed to smother the life inside of me..I was a Holocaust survivor." Having grown up in post-WWII Poland, Peter Loth knew very little about his past. As an adult, even the few details Peter thought he understood about his life began to unravel. With the help of the American Red Cross, Peter discovered a piece of his past that would change everything - he had been born in Stutthof Concentration Camp. In this gripping memoir, Peter embarks on a painful journey back to his childhood full of abuse, loneliness, and hatred. As Peter wrestles with his anger and bitterness standing in the remains of his birthplace almost 60 years later, God breaks in. Peter learns how to give and receive forgiveness, which transforms his life and brings him the peace he has been searching for. Peter Loth is an international speaker who carries a message of reconciliation between nations, cultures, families, and individuals. He and his wife live in Kansas City. Sandra Kellogg Rath received her Bachelor's Degree in Speech Communication and her Master's Degree in Communication and Rhetorical Studies at Syracuse University.

Forgiveness is Possible Apr 16, 2009
When a friend recommended this book to me I had no idea that I would be glued to my chair and crying the rest of the day away. I simply could not put it down. It was difficult to stomach in places but necessary. Forgiveness is an important topic to me and the issues I have dealt with in that subject do not stack up at all to what this man has been through in his life. Yet, by the grace of God, he was able to release the pain and truly forgive. This gives me hope for myself and my situations. The freedom of spirit he experiences through forgiveness shows that it is worth it. Honestly, I have heard stories about the Holocaust before this one, but this first person post Holocaust story is a must read. Younger readers should not read it without parental approval.
Gripping with a triumphant ending Sep 3, 2008
This book is very well written, and immediately captures your heart and your attention. Although emotionally difficult to read at times, it is a true story of hope and triumph.
