Born in Zakroczym, Poland, in 1927, Holocaust survivor Joe Engel was taken by the Nazis at 14 and never saw his parents again. Now 90 years old, Joe is an embodiment of living history and spends his retirement years helping to ensure that the Holocaust will never be forgotten. From the overwhelming despair of the Warsaw Ghetto, to the shroud of unceasing death and suffering that enveloped Birkenau and Auschwitz, to his escape from a death train at 17 and his covert work as a freedom fighter, Joe personally takes us on his vivid journey to hell and back, in a story of faith, renewal and redemption. Joe Engel, with an unwavering will to live, overcame unimaginable horrors to become a treasured citizen, community leader, teacher, and philanthropist.
