We are delighted to announce the upcoming publication of a new edition of our bestselling Holocaust memoir, Maybe You Will Survive.

Maybe You Will Survive tells the incredible true story of fifteen-year-old Aron Goldfarb’s escape from the Holocaust after the Nazis invaded his home in Poland.

Aron’s story is a phenomenal one. Not only was he able to escape from his imprisonment in Pionki labour camp, but he and his brother then overcame unbelievable odds to survive seven grueling months hidden together in self-made, underground bunkers until the end of the war – directly under the noses of the SS officers who were hunting them.

Now available in paperback as well as eBook format, this special 2020 edition commemorates 75 years since the end of WWII and Aron’s liberation from the horrors of the Holocaust. Complete with a brand new cover, this anniversary edition also includes poignant reflections on Aron’s life and legacy from his sons, Morris and Ira Goldfarb, in an exclusive new foreword.

Co-author Graham Diamond remembers Aron as an “extraordinary person”, and said:

“Working on the project with Aron Goldfarb was an experience I’ll never forget. As we began, I found myself facing this tough New York businessman, highly successful and highly regarded by colleagues and competitors alike. I both taped Aron and took copious notes. Tears came to Aron’s eyes as he spoke about his childhood, his father, his mother, his brothers, his town, his world. My job was to make it come alive. To make him and what he shared as real as possible. I believe I succeeded, and I am grateful for the opportunity I was given. The book’s successes are his successes, and I was only the messenger. For me, Aron still lives, and I believe that the readers of Maybe You Will Survive will feel very much the same.”

This edition of Maybe You Will Survive is due to publish in paperback on 20th April 2020, to honour this year’s Yom Hashoah. You can pre-order your copy here.
