About this title
The Boy in the Suitcase: Holocaust Family Stories of Survival is a uniquely different Holocaust book. It reads like an intriguing novel, such as the title chapter which tells the story of an infant smuggled out of Germany in a suitcase and raised in the Dominican Republic. Each chapter tells a different story of families throughout the world who have been affected by the Holocaust. This book also covers the trauma of second generation children of Holocaust survivors and the bravery of Christian families who hid Jewish children in Quaregnon, Belgium. The Boy in the Suitcase includes inspirational stories from nations such as Russia, Poland, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, and the Dominican Republic. Intelligence, courage, and the will to survive permeate each remarkable chapter.

About the Author
Reviews
It is important to continue to tell the stories of those brutally humiliated, tortured, and murdered during the Holocaust. . . . This book ensures that the innocent victims will no longer remain anonymous in their deaths. As the Maggid of her ancestral Dubno before her, Sheryl tells unique and inspirational stories in her book. In doing so, she honors the memory of the brave resistors, rescuers, and especially the families whose ultimate revenge is their continuance today.
— Zvi Bielski, son of Zus Bielski of the Bielski Brothers Brigade

I am breathless! I had my family read our chapter and we are overwhelmed. Thank you for doing this and for asking me to take part. This book is a legacy that I would be proud to leave my children.
— Shirley, second generation daughter of survivors

I just have to tell you how much I admire Sheryl's intellectual curiosity, talent, appreciation for heritage and history, determination, and energy.
— Shelley, retired teacher, New York City
