taxi am shabbat

the reason for our visit in dachau was the world premiere of the new book (in german) about the last jews in eastern europe written by my cousin eva gruberova and her husband helmut zeller: taxi am shabbat
if you asked me, the book has a character of a documentary as it describes many individual fates from jews in hungary, ukraine, slovakia, czech republic, lithuania ... we bought one of the much to few prepared samples (the printery / publisher was not ready for all that interested readers, i guess), so i will post an update when i read through, promissed. but please be patient as i have actually 2 another books in my reading pipeline :o)

of course, we enjoyed the opportunity to walk around in dachau and discovered a beautiful hundertwasser-style house out there:
in the middle of the picture you can see part of the dachau castle on a small hill
 after the solemn reading there was a lot of time to celebrate with family & friends afterward :-)
 good-bye dachau, i hope to see you soon again
more pictures here
their former project was the documentary born in concentration camp
