Michael Ruskin is an author/researcher and has written a very compelling and informative book about World War II and the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of his late parents, David and Dora Ruskin, Holocaust survivors from Lithuania.
In the book, The Vow: A Love Story and the Holocaust, Michael describes how two extraordinary people transcended one of the darkest periods of World War II; the Nazi occupation of Lithuania (1941-1945) where the lives of nearly 97% of the country's Jewish population perished at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators. (This horrific statistic reflects the highest percentage of Jewish deaths by country in Europe during World War II.)
Considering the odds of their survival, one can only conclude it was only through their unwavering love for each other, their faith in God and their unshakeable courage which made the difference between life and death.
They were truly a "miracle couple" who deserve to be honoured and their legacy preserved. And they left a message for all of us!
This has also been picked up by some influential people in the film industry and may well get turned into a mini series or film at some point.
Michael has self published and is self promoting such is his love for this story being told in the right way with integrity.
