In Memory of the Gentle Butcher of Hongkew

"This is an amazing story of a Holocaust survivor and his family...A remarkable and powerful story of survival." --

My wife's grandfather passed away on Sunday. He was an amazing man and the few times I had to speak with him gave me glimpses of the incredible life he led.

Sidney B. Kurtz wrote a biography called Marcel Singer: The Gentle Butcher of Hongkew. It's a fascinating tale, based on a fascinating, inspirational life.

I'll miss the man we knew as "Grandpa" who always had a smile, a firm handshake, and a gleam in his eye. May he rest in peace, and may the powerful story of his life live on.
