A Candle and a Promise

The Troubling but ultimately Triumphant Memoirs of Holocaust Survivor Hank Brodt

A story of resilience, Hank Brodt Holocaust Memoirs – A Candle and a Promise makes the memories of Holocaust survivor Hank Brodt come alive. It offers a detailed historical account of being a Jewish teenager under the Nazi regime, shedding light on sickening truths in an honest, matter-of-fact way.

Hank Brodt lived through one of the darkest periods of human history and survived the devastation of World War II. Born in 1925 into a poor family in Boryslaw (Poland), he was placed in a Jewish orphanage. Losing his family when the Germans invaded Poland, he waged a daily battle to survive. Moving from forced labor camps to concentration camps, one of which features in Schindler’s List, his world behind the barbed wire consisted of quiet resistance, invisible tears and silent cries for years on end.

This story of survival includes rare photographs from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum that powerfully illustrate these intimate and shocking memoirs. One recently discovered picture shows Hank Brodt in prison uniform removing the dead on carts at the liberated Ebensee concentration camp on May 7, 1945.

It is hard to believe that someone who endured such horrific events could go on to live a life of gratitude. Through his unwavering compassion towards others, Hank Brodt managed to keep his humanity and find a way to move forward. After the Second World War, Hank Brodt testified at the trial of Nazi war criminal Amon Goeth in Dachau, Germany. He has joined the March of the Living since 2006, walking from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Yom Hashoah to pay tribute to the millions that died. Lighting the candle, he made a promise to himself to always answer the call to talk.

“As the train rattled down the tracks, the noise it made seemed to say, death – death – death. But in my mind and heart it sang, life – life – life.”

DESCRIPTION:

EOD – “It’s a lot like brain surgery, except if we screw up the patient detonates….Oh yeah, and we do it underwater.”
– A Navy EOD Technician

The Sailors of the United States Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community “perform under pressure” in the hazardous job of bomb disposal, often deep beneath the sea…alone.

An EOD Technician must have the brains of an engineer, the hands of a surgeon, and the courage of a martyr. In the U.S. Navy, carrier flight operations only occur under the watchful eye of EOD Techs ready to respond to ordnance accidents. U.S. Marines assault enemy beachheads only after EOD Techs clear the littoral seas and landing zones of mines. The U.S. Secret Service even relies on military bomb squads to protect the President and visiting foreign dignitaries. Perhaps the best testimony of their value is that when the Navy needs to place a limpet mine under an enemy ship it tasks the Navy SEALs, but to respond to such an attack – the Navy summons EOD.

Proximity highlights the exciting work of one EOD detachment as they become enmeshed in the efforts of a terrorist coalition operating both in Europe and the United States. Lieutenant “Jazz” Jascinski and the men of Detachment Four become the key to helping the FBI apprehend these terrorists – until their unique skills place them under suspicion. To protect themselves, the Techs must race to find the culprits before they become the next victims…

Advance Praise for Proximity:

“Stephen Phillips is the real deal; a Navy EOD Officer and front line operator in the war against terrorism. Proximity is a well crafted thriller– enthralling, realistic and frightening. Move over Tom Clancy.”

– CHUCK PFARRER, author of Warrior Soul and Killing Che

“Steve Phillips is a member of a select group who live by the creed `Initial success or total failure.’ EOD Technicians are the special operations community’s unsung heroes…until now. Proximity is a great read and hopefully one of many more books by Phillips.”

– STEVE WATERMAN, author of Just a Sailor

For a man who has sworn off women, Lucifer is reluctantly drawn to the fiery lass. It is an attraction he cannot ignore and unexpected passion ignites between two people who have different ideals in life. Genevieve is the fire to his ice, but when a treacherous pirate in Lucifer’s ranks seeks to separate Lucifer from his lady, but the bond between Lucifer and Genevieve is something that cannot be broken.

Join the man named for a fallen angel and the woman he loves in a tale of romance, excitement, and most of all, pirate adventure as the Sea Wolfe rules the high seas.
