  • Nathan's Bitterness and Salvation

Product Description

Nathan's Bitterness And Salvation is based on the true, moving and often frightening adventures of a 12-year-old Dutch Jewish boy who survived the Holocaust. Nathan is saved from the Nazis by Catholic gentiles, baptized and then directed to enter the Catholic priesthood.
While in hiding, his Jewish parents convert to Catholism. At the age of 15, he starts studying to be a priest. At 20, after the death of his father, he leaves the Catholic boarding school to fulfill his army duty and begins his law studies. Becoming a member of the Dutch Zionist Students Union helps him identify with his Jewish roots and decide to return to the Jewish tradition.
His marriage and immigration to Israel is portrayed in a heartrending fashion; his anguish and suffering finally lead to his decision to begin a sincere and honest Jewish Orthodox life.

Fred Daniels was born in Amsterdam in 1932. From 1942-1945 he was forced into hiding in Holland. After the war he studied law at the universities of Amsterdam and Nijmegen. He immigrated to Israel in January 1968 and today lives in Jerusalem practicing law. Nathan's Bitterness and Salvation was translated from the Dutch by Benno Ehrlich.
