Recipe type Hi! I love this unique idea for a book

I was wondering though, with hesitation, are these going to be meals that the victims of the holocaust actually made with meagre provisions or an enjoyable meal. That would be inspiring and it would be so exciting to get recipes from all over the world. I’m pretty sure the latter is the case.

I hope to own this book soon. I would proud to own this book and to leave it on the living room table!

p s I like the title. It is what it is! Why should anything be taboo about so many Jews who were murdered, starved, separated from loved ones and worked to death? This is exactly what Holocaust Remembrance is all about. To never forget or diminish. Reply

A Fantastic Book but that title... We had seen an advert for this great book in our local paper, but my wife and I were immediately taken aback by the title. That is a very offputting and somewhat creepy thing to read, concerning the subject matter. I would really consider changing it to something else, really. No disrespect and I still appreciate the content. Thanks...Joe Reply
