Am KeLavi by Naftali Lau-Lavie

I just finished reading the book Am KeLavi by Naftali Lau-Lavi.  Naftali is Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau's older brother, and was instrumental in saving him during the holocaust.  After the war, Mr.  Lau-Lavie came to Israel.  He became a journalist who later went on the serve as a media advisor and spokesman for Moshe Dayan.  He was witness to and played a major role in some of the major events in Israeli history, such as the Camp David Accords.

The book is fascinating and well worth the read.  After reading it, one really appreciates the privilege of living here in the State of Israel.  An English version of the book is available for those of you that do not understand Hebrew.

Here are a few videos of the Lau brothers discussing their experiences during the holocaust:
