In this engaging, inspiring, and educational Holocaust survivor memoir, Ben Lesser invites listeners to revisit a time in history when the world went mad. Learn how this ordinary, young Jewish teenager from Krakow, Poland, survived through extraordinary times living in ghettos, enduring four concentrations camps -- including Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Dachau -- two death marches, and two death trains. After liberation from Dachau, the Holocaust survivor slowly healed, eventually recovering physically from his near-death experience. At age 18 – penniless, uneducated, and unable to speak English – he made his way to the USA and succeeded in living the American Dream. One of the most important rags-to-riches biographies by Holocaust survivors, as a teacher, bearing witness to the past and teaching students of all ages the important values of tolerance, democracy, respect for human dignity, and decency. Ben´s determination to achieve his dreams—despite horror and tragedy—is a harrowing nonfiction account of his life that will inspire you to achieve your own dreams. Narrated in part by actor/producer/director Jonathan Silverman, Son of Rabbi Hillel Silverman and grandson of Rabbi Morris Silverman. ´´I am honored to help share the remarkable story of this remarkable man. Ben Lesser is a survivor in every sense. The important message of Ben´s journey is Zachor: Remember.

That´s Boston Blackie, safecracker turned crime fighter and a long-running favorite with fans of straight-ahead detective fiction in a wide range of media. Beginning inauspiciously in a 1919 short story by author Jack Boyle, Blackie progressed from the printed page into silent films, then into talkies - and finally, in the 1940s, into radio. The first radio Blackie was Chester Morris, who played the role in a long series of B movies during the 1940s. Beginning in 1944 as a summer replacement series for Amos ´n´ Andy, Morris brought a certain wrong-side-of-the-tracks charm to his portrayal and gave the character a well-crafted introduction to the broadcast medium. But the longest-running radio Blackie was an odd casting choice: Broadway and sometime soap opera actor Richard Kollmar, best known to radio fans along the Eastern seaboard as the urbane Dick of WOR´s Breakfast with Dorothy and Dick, a morning show which also featured his wife, newspaper columnist Dorothy Kilgallen. 1.
