The Bible of Bergen Belsen

The Bible of Bergen Belsen

If the Nazi guards at Bergen Belsen would have found the 43-page miniature Bible he drew, they would have murdered this determined father on the spot. But that didn’t stop the father of 7-year-old Dina Dasberg from drawing this Bible in order to teach his deaf daughter the greatest stories of the Jewish tradition.

They can beat us

They can persecute us.

They can even murder us. By the millions.

But the Jewish soul is stronger than death. Am Yisrael Chai.
