Minneapolis.

Dr. Fisch, a native of Budapest, Hungary, delivers a collection of stories based on his reflections of the Holocaust, Hungarian revolution, journey to America and his work as a doctor, artist, and humanitarian. Each of the stories showcases the presence or absence of his six guiding values of: compassion, equal treatment, children, humor, suffering and the value of remaining humane even in inhumane circumstances.
