“Fostering positive values such as respect
and unity are so relevant for today.”
Marty Brounstein (March 4, 1957 - July 31, 2020)

Garden City Park, NY: With the Passover holidays now concluded, Square One is pleased to announce that the late Marty Brounstein's acclaimed Holocaust title The Righteous Few ($16.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0497-1) is now available in audiobook format.

What makes this audiobook especially poignant is that Mr. Brounstein served as narrator on it, and finished the job only a few weeks before his death (due to a short battle with cancer) in late July 2020.

The Righteous Few is the true story of how Frans and Mien Wijnakke, a Catholic couple from Dieden of the Netherlands, saved the lives of at least two dozen Jews in southern Holland at the height of the Holocaust during World War II. More than just a Holocaust account, what makes this tale so important to us all in these perilous political times is how this simple couple from a small town ran the risk of losing their lives every time that they saved a life.

The book has been declared a "great story" by top book critic Charles Ashbacher and celebrated by fellow reviewer Grady Harp as being "beautifully told." To listen to Marty Brounstein's sensitive narration of his own book is to be reminded of his wonderful storytelling skills and tireless visits to schools throughout the US and abroad in an effort to spread the word of this inspiring story.

His widow, Leah Baarswhose own survival of the Holocaust as a baby connects with The Righteous Fewis now at the helm, along with her children, of the "Inspiring Courage Legacy Fund" that Marty worked hard to set up prior to his passing.
