The Good and the True

Author(s): & & &

Drawn from the original journals of Czech athlete Milos Dobry and actress Hana Pravda, this is the story of two people who went through the same places and experienced similar tragedies—and yet they never met. The paths of their lives crossed each other but also passed each other. They both survived Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, death marches, and witnessed murder firsthand.
