Where Was God?: Lives and Thoughts of Holocaust and World War II Survivors

Remkes Kooistra, Editor Mosaic Press (NY) $15 (204p) ISBN 978-0-88962-757-4
During his tenure as chaplain at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Remkes Kooistra, a Calvinist, explored the question Where Was God? The Lives and Thoughts of Holocaust and World War II Survivors. Drawing on his own experiences living and working in the Netherlands during the war (his father was imprisoned for ""underground"" activity and nearly died), other academics' writings and, predominantly, the oral histories of Jewish and non-Jewish survivors of WWII living in the Waterloo area, Kooistra has constructed an eloquent, painful book about persecution and redemption. Although many of these pieces are excerpts from previously published works, Kooistra does provide new information about the treatment of Dutch Jews during the war, including how many were hidden and saved from the Holocaust.
