Reports from a Distant Place
by Frank Shatz
Frank Shatz’s book, Reports from a Distant Place, is about
life in the shadow of death. It is
a unique portrayal of survival during the Holocaust, by hiding in plain sight. It
is also about living, dangerously, under the Red Star. The last chapter, In America,
is about hope and a reinvented life.
Frank Shatz is among the last who can explain the Holocaust
first-hand. After the war, he promoted the work of anti-communist underground
in Eastern Europe. His columns convey insight, courage, luck, hope.Bill O’Donovan, publisher The Virginia Gazette
