Crucible of Terror review by John K. Roth

Claremont McKenna College

A Story of Survival Through the Nazi Storm

Max Liebster

In heartbreaking detail, this memoir plunges its readers into the depths of the Holocaust’s darkness. In that darkness the human spirit did not triumph, but the testimony of survivors such as Max Liebster shows that resistance against evil and despair are not only possible but also essential in a world still imperiled by threats of mass destruction and genocide.
