Months after World War II officially ends, a 15-year-old boy still hides in a potato field. The horror of the Holocaust is followed by the horror of survival. The question "Why me?" haunts survivors for the rest of our lives. For some of us, life is only possible under the anesthesia of silence. After 63 years, Leon Rubinstein has broken his silence with this book. As I Am Presently Known is a remarkable story of life's victory over death and about one generation passing the torch to another. Marian Marzynski Holocaust survivor, documentary filmmaker, author of acclaimed film "Shtetl"
