Two IJN staffers publish books

A book of stories from around the world; a memoir of survival with Bielski partisans

TWO IJN staff members published books this month.

IJN Executive Editor Rabbi Hillel Goldberg published The Unexpected Road: Storied Jewish Lives around the World (Feldheim Publishers).

This is his sixth book.

IJN Senior Writer Andrea Jacobs co-authored the story of Paula Burger’s survival during the Holocaust in the forests of Belarus under the leadership of Tuvia Bielski, made famous by the movie, “Defiance.”

The book is titled, Paula’s Window: Papa, the Bielski Partisans and a Life Unexpected.

This is Jacobs’ first book.

Set side by side, the books take up the greater part of an ordinary bookcase shelf....
