About the Book

Abram Bobrow is a man tormented by the ghosts and horrors of the past.  Relentless nightmares force him to relive a time in his life that was unimaginably horrible. 

A decade after the end of World War II and the Bobrow family's

emigration to the United States, Abram's young sons, Jerry and Bill (ten and twelve years old) become aware of their father's nightly torment, and beg to know why these terrible dreams still occur.  Deciding that they are finally old enough to hear this harrowing story, over the next seven days, Abram carefully details what it was like to live though one of the most terrible, tragic and darkest periods of human history.

This is Abram Bobrow's true story-how he and his wife Julia, who lived through a Nazi firing squad, escaped into the vast forests of western Byelorussia, became Jewish partisan fighters and fought back against the Nazis.  This is a unique story of the triumph and indomitability of the human spirit.

About the Author

Voices from the ForestThe story of Abram and Julia Bobrow is a story that had to be written. It is about the indomitability of the human spirit. As an experienced author, I wanted to write it myself, but couldn’t. It was too draining and too difficult. I was too close. My good friend Steve Paper came to the rescue. He was the perfect author to research and write this story. He had been searching for a story of not only survivors, but also fighters. His interest and knowledge of history in general, and the Holocaust in particular, gave him tremendous insight into not only the time period, but also the hearts and minds of those who resisted. His writing is strong, touching, sincere. I watched Steve labor for almost five years over every detail and careful revision to get the information and the story just right.
