Why My Father Ran

Authored by Henia S Stein
Edited by Sandra Daum Berger

What compelled a 60+-year-old man, who had been diagnosed previously with blockages of his heart but refused surgery, to begin running marathons? You could say his running began back in Bilgoraj, Poland.

"I call this invisible power" Simcha was known to say.

Interviewed by numerous magazine and newspaper reporters why Simcha ran, he would reply "because I could" and the people he lost in his hometown of Bilgoraj could not.

My hopes for this book is that other 2nd generations will take the time to get the stories from the holocaust survivors they know ... before it is too late for many of them are disappearing rapidly.
