Bernice Lerner, senior scholar at Boston University’s Center for Character and Social Responsibility and former dean of adult learning at Hebrew College, links her mother’s story of survival during World War II to that of Brigadier Hugh Llewelyn Glyn Hughes, the first allied medical officer to enter Bergen-Belsen, in her book, “All the Horrors of War: A Jewish Girl, a British Doctor, and the Liberation of Bergen-Belsen.”
Their entwined narratives tell a larger story—about the suffering of the victims and the struggles of liberators who strove to save lives, and about the human capacity for fortitude and redemption.
“A towering achievement … This true, meticulously researched story is as inspiring as it is horrifying and dispiriting—Lerner has created something to nourish the soul.”
—Dr. Robert Kegan, Harvard University
