Yosl Rakover Talks to God

Zvi Kolitz

A thought provoking read. This book will appeal if you are interested in the nature of God and religious belief, particularly in relation to Judaism and the Holocaust.

Extract

God has hidden his face from the world and delivered mankind to its own savage urges and instincts. This is why I believe that when the forces of evil dominate the world, it is, alas completely natural that the first victims will be those who represent the holy and the pure.
