A Memoir of Disability, Cancer, and the Holocaust

William Roth May 19, 2008

ISBN #978-0786437832

Copyright: 2008 - McFarland

As William Roth was taking his first steps, members of his family were caught up in the Nazi Holocaust. At age eight, he began to manifest the symptoms of dystonia, a neurological disease characterized by severe movement disorders. And at age forty-seven, he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsil, a cancer that would prove as invasive as his genetic disease and as dreadful as his social persecution. This, his memoir, relates the three intertwined narratives and the miraculous success that one man carved from them.
