Summary "This book contains a number of letters, sermons and other documents written by Dr. Joseph Carlebach during his last two years as Chief Rabbi of Hamburg. These writings reveal his deep religious faith, his words of comfort and his courageous acts during a period of great danger. They also provide insight into his relationship to a number of individuals whose significance gave him the strength to express his deep feelings for all jews during the fateful years from 1939 to 1941." -- pg. 4
