Since childhood, author Fiona Gold Kroll has been drawn to a photograph of her great-uncle, Benjamin Albaum, a Jewish man who disappeared from Paris at the beginning of World War II. A Stone for Benjamin is the compelling story of her quest to discover his fate. Chasing Holocaust shadows across Europe and beyond, she begins her powerful journey searching for clues with nothing more than a misspelled name, old photographs and family stories. Determined to uncover the truth about Benjamin's life and death and France's betrayal of its Jewish population, Fiona pieces together her great-uncle's life, elevating Benjamin's legacy from a number tattooed on his arm at Auschwitz to a more complete memory of the vibrant man he was. "Kroll's prose is eloquent and evocative, and her writing is admirably self-aware ... A detailed examination of a Holocaust victim's life and a considerate, thought-provoking look into why Holocaust narratives are important." - Kirkus Reviews… (más)

This is a work of love. An intricately researched memoir that plucks a long-deceased relative out of obscurity, and, with the authors words, makes him a man we come to know and care about.

A photo of Benjamin becomes mentally three-dimensional. Happiness, fear, sadness, hope....you'll feel all his emotions. A Jew. A family man. His eventual death in Auschwitz. His roots = Fiona Gold Krolls roots. And he'd be so proud of what she accomplished...those beautiful eyes would be beaming.
I finished this book with tears in MY eyes.

My favorite quote: "I want to erase the idea of Benjamin as a number. He should be remembered as a human being, a man with feelings and a man who loved life and cared deeply for his wife and children. I want to give Benjamin back his life."
