Many of you know the story of the death camps – Auschwitz, Birkenau, Ravensbrück and Treblinka. What you might not know is the story of the Jewish resistance to the horrors of the death camps – of the courageous men and women who dared to make a stand and fight.
This book also tells a story of ‘Din’ meaning, ‘judgement’ in Hebrew.
In 1945, after the war, a small group of Jews formed this secret organisation to ensure the Nazis should know the pain to torture and brutality suffered by over 6 million Jews. Many powerful Nazis died at their hands – and then they worked out the most daring plan of all … a scheme to poison the water supply to a quarter of a million German homes.
Forged in Fury is a remarkable work, written in white-hot anger, about the greatest evil ever known to mankind.
