Transylvania Blue is a biography about my great uncle's escape from the Nazis and then Soviet occupation to freedom in Canada. It intertwines memory, historical and current context, and personal anecdotes to reconstruct the life of a man whose experiences reveal both the worst and the best of human potential. It's a story of the Jewish experience surrounding the Holocaust, and it's a human story with important insights for our lives as individuals living during extraordinary times.
