About the author:
Born in Wildfecken, Germany - in a displaced persons camp after the Second World War, Ms. Schwartz emigrated to the U.S.A. with her parents and younger sister when she was two years old. She was raised in Michigan, and attended Michigan State University where she studied journalism and communication arts.
She moved to California in her early twenties, where she married and raised a family. Schwartz began doing research on the subject of non-Jewish Holocaust victims after she converted to Judaism, and in 1997 she published a highly acclaimed website, www.holocaustforgotten.com.
Ms. Schwartz is also an artist and fine art photographer, and a juried member of the Thousand Oaks Art Association. The history of the Holocaust - especially related to the non-Jewish victims, continues to be of great interest to her. She is currently working on a second and more expanded volume on the non-Jewish victims.

Cover design or artwork by
Eleven million people were killed in the Holocaust. Six million of these were Jewish - Hitler's most recognized victims. But, five million were not Jewish. Who were these other victims?
The author, a Jewish convert of Polish Catholic descent, whose uncle was murdered by the Nazis, discovered that there are many non-Jewish survivors and children of survivors, who have been searching for a voice and an opportunity to finally be counted. This book sheds light on some of the non-Jewish victims with interviews and individual stories.
Foreword by Danusha V. Goska, PhD
