The Tower of Life: How Yaffa Eliach Rebuilt Her Town in Stories and Photographs

By Chana Stiefel (Author), Susan Gal (Illustrator)

Years after the Holocaust, Yaffa Eliach traveled the world to collect photographs from former members of her destroyed shtetl, which were used to create the Tower of Life memorial exhibit at the U.S. Holocaust Museum.


From the 2023 Sibert press release:
With a recurring theme of light and life amidst the darkness, and primary source photographs integrated into illustrations, this book excellently contextualizes Eliach’s life and her work building the “Tower of Faces” exhibition at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
