New beginnings: 'Letters of Stone, from Nazi Germany to South Africa'
Author and anthropologist Steven Robins embarked on a journey trying to find out what happened to his extended family members who were killed in the Holocaust.
In his book Letters of Stone, from Nazi Germany to South Africa, Robins describes how members of his family (late grandmother and two aunts) perished and how his father, Artur Robinski managed to get out of the Holocaust and came to South Africa.
In his journey Robins visited the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, Berliner Gedenkbuch and other places which had profound impact on him.
