An Incredible Love Story in the Shadows of the Holocaust.

Updated: Apr 25, 2023

Once in a great while a book comes along that reveals God's presence through the events that shape our lives. The Vow: A Love Story and the Holocaust is such a book. My book s a true story about my late parents, David and Dora Ruskin, Holocaust survivors from Lithuania. Their lives left a message for humanity which they wanted to share, but was left unspoken....until now. As the last surviving member of my family, I felt it was my responsibility as their son to keep their legacy alive through this book and to deliver a message they wanted to share with humanity. A message we need to remember. Through the strength of our eternal human spirit we can overcome any challenge regardless of how difficult the circumstance, even surviving one of the darkest times in human history...The Holocaust..

If only we could teach today’s youth how to persevere in bad times instead of choosing suicide.

While reading The Vow, I had to put the book down several times because the story was so heartbreaking. We have learned about the Holocaust from history books, but you brought the story home to our hearts. What a wonderful ending! I would have loved to have met your parents. Linda

This, my friend is a testimonial on how tragedy can be transmuted and transformed to healing and love through awareness. We must stay aware of the truths of our world, not turning a blind eye to what is going on. History is now repeating itself in our world. Will we dare to look and take responsibility for creating the world we desire? Thank You, Michael for your honesty, determination, and sincerity to return good for evil in a chaotic world! Love has won. You are making a difference! Sonja

For those of you who have read my book I mentioned that fact that if we don't learn from the past, history will repeat itself. I never dreamed that I would be witnessing again the dark side of a past that has returned. Breaks my heart. What is going on in eastern Europe is only hours away from where my Parents lived and my family died. I never thought I would live to see this day.... Michael.

I enjoyed the book very much. People my age grew up learning about the Holocaust. Hopefully, young people today will read this book and do the same.

Yes, my intention of my book was to reach out to those younger people so they have a better understanding of what happened during that dark period in human history..and we can learn from it. Not to mention to appreciate the strength of the hunman spirit to overcome the chanllenges in life... Michael
