- My Journey from the Shtetl Through the Holocaust
- By: Vic Shayne, Martin Small
- Narrated by: Peter Altschuler
- Length: 10 hrs and 30 mins
Remember Us is a look back at the lost world of the shtetl: a wise Zayde offering prophetic and profound words to his grandson, the rich experience of Shabbos, and the treasure of a loving family. All this is torn apart with the arrival of the Holocaust, beginning a crucible fraught with twists and turns so unpredictable and surprising that they defy any attempt to find reason within them. Through the eyes of 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Martin Small, we learn that these priceless memories that are too painful to remember are also too painful to forget.
A Tragic and Rich Life, With Lessons For All

Such an account....beautifully and painfully told.
Every so often, I listen to a story of the holocaust for my own understanding, and to remind myself to note the times in which we live, and to cherish family and peace. Odd that I would need reminding, but the pursuits of life are distracting to all of us. The prophecies of the Bible (a book written by Jewish prophets) mention a terrible destruction that was to happen twice. Both as one of the many signs of the first (in the flesh) and second (in His glory) comings of the Messiah. 70 AD was the first. I cannot help but think that what is called abomination of desolation by ancient prophets, by Daniel, and by the Savior Himself, is what is called holocaust by our generation. Jesus said in Matthew 24 that those of the generation that see "these things" would also see the rest of His words fulfilled. It is always a good idea to follow the counsels of the Messiah. This generation has more reason in doing so than any other. God bless the Jewish people.

Much too brief for a complex topic

Very basic...I was hoping for something more innovative. All these guidelines would generally be understood by anyone by age 25.
