Just months after his liberation from Auschwitz, he delivered a series of talks revealing the foundations of his life-affirming philosophy, which have been translated for the first time into English.

His book, according to the publisher, is designed to “make readers more globally literate” by “explaining complex ideas with wisdom and clarity.’’ (Nonfiction)

Among the author’s claims: Former FBI Director James Comey and top figures in the Justice Department openly worked against President Trump; The Deep State relies on the complicity of the mainstream media to achieve its ends; and how Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged Russian collusion quickly found no evidence of wrong-doing by the President or his campaign but nevertheless produced a massive report intended as an act of political subversion.
