Author Escapes Holocaust, Finds Success in America, Details All in New Autobiography

Toronto News, (PR) February 13, 2012

Angels in the Forest (published by iUniverse) is the story of the author, Earl Greif who grew up on a small farm in Galicia, a region of Poland where his family was caught in the tentacles of the Nazi invasion and trapped in a ghetto. Grief and his little brother Lou hid in an oven to escape the massacre that wiped out all of his family and subsequently eluded capture by subsisting for months in a dense forest, passing as Gentiles and joining a Russian army hospital. Eventually they made their way to the United States, where Earl became a real estate developer and co-founded a Holocaust memorial.

Like Robert Graves Good-Bye to All That, an autobiography that traces the tragedies that occurred as a result of the First World War, Greifs Angels in the Forest depicts the huge losses that come in the wake of war. Yet, Greif is also clear to paint a portrait of redemption, reciting his guiding mantra, life goes on.

Greifs found success as a real estate developer in the U.S. provides a cheer-worthy and ironic conclusion to his gripping memoir. The fact that Greif now makes a living trading a commodity he was once stripped of is not lost on him. Never forget, says Greif. Never forget.
