    South Padre Island, TX: David Harry Tannenbaum’s gripping historic novel about the Holocaust was 40 years in the making.

    “Amazingly, although I am Jewish, I didn’t know anything about the Holocaust until law school,” says Tannenbaum. In law school, he read cases stemming from the Nuremburg Trials. That’s when Tannenbaum first became familiar with the horrors of the Nazi World War II concentration camps that ended the lives of millions of people simply because they were Jewish or because the Nazi government perceived them as a threat.

    “After graduation, while doing charity work in New Jersey, I met a man who had his concentration camp number tattooed on his arm,” continues Tannenbaum in a recent interview about the Pittsburgh launch of his latest book. That information started a four-decade long journey of learning about the Holocaust by writing of Out of the Depths, the account of a fictional Holocaust survivor, Dr. Bernard Helgman.

    After the war, Tannenbaum’s lead character becomes a brilliant pediatric surgeon in the United States. Helgman left Auschwitz behind, but he could never forget the horrors he experienced, and the actions he took to remain alive while a prisoner.

    Tannenbaum’s spellbinding account of life after the Holocaust explores Helgman’s struggle with survivor’s guilt that leaves his personal life in shambles. His life gets worse when another victim from that dark chapter of history recognizes Helgman and exposes him for participating in sadistic experiments on camp prisoners.

    Tannenbaum brilliantly explores the unresolved, and perhaps unresolvable, trauma that follows a man long after he leaves the barbed wire fence behind. Survivor’s guilt is now a recognized emotional and psychological condition that sometimes follows military personnel home from the war. The term started to be used after World War I when doctors were seeing similar anxiety symptoms in Holocaust survivors that they observed in soldiers who survived combat or citizens who survived natural disasters, terrorist attacks, plane crashes and sudden loss of jobs.

    Tannenbaum’s Dr. Helgman character is haunted by dark memories and remorse. Though not even an adult yet when assigned to work in the camp infirmary, he was forced to assist the SS doctors in their gruesome experiments. His Jewish face was often the last one a victim saw before being subjected to horrific atrocities.  Helgman's struggle to put Auschwitz behind him is a powerful story of our human drive to survive whatever life throws our way.

    Out of the Depths, published by, Red Engine Press, is available in E-book format at Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and iBooks. The print version is available at Amazon and bookstores everywhere.
