Every Holocaust story is unique, but Joe Pell’s is so extraordinary it transcends the genre.
Pell’s book, “Taking Risks,” is part World War II saga, part adventure tale, part memoir. It encompasses the tragedy of the war and the triumph of the survivors. It goes from Pell’s days sleeping on leaves and digging for potatoes in the Ukrainian woods to his life among the Bay Area’s most successful businessmen.
It’s also a great read.
