A STORY LIKE NO OTHER
A journey from slave to master.
He Made History
As a Jewish slave laborer under the Nazis on the Russian Front, he impersonated the German commander, ordering: “Retreat!” to the German soldiers, reversing the tide of a major battle toward a crushing Nazi defeat while saving the lives of countless Jewish slaves to whom Aaron exhorted to follow their fleeing masters into the woods…he later escaped from the slave labor camp and joined the Russian Army, for whom he captured and interrogated hundreds of Nazi officers and spies, obtaining valuable intelligence for the Russians—who then rewarded him by making him ruler of a conquered Nazi town with unlimited power to exact revenge against his mortal enemies. But then the Russians arrested him and prepared to kill him on suspicion of being a German spy. Escaping from the Russians and running for his life as a fugitive with a huge price on his head, Aaron manages once again to outwit his pursuers. After the war, he becomes a wealthy black marketeer, and even marries his hometown sweetheart when they find each other by chance, hundreds of miles away from home.
Meet Aaron Herskowitz: 5’2” inches tall, thief, horse master, assassin, smuggler, a Jewish slave who escaped from his captors and made history—but until now, wasn’t recorded in it. Aaron’s Revenge is the true adventure of a World War II hero you’ve never heard of. This gripping story, based on the recollections Aaron’s son Howard pried out of him late in his life, shows the power of one human being who refuses to let evil go unchallenged—even challenging the evil of revenge he found in his own heart.
