New book by Simon & Schuster #poland #general


Dear Group


I wondered if the JewishGen subscribers may be interested in reading my brother Melbourne writer, Leon Silver’s latest book published by Simon & Schuster titled, ‘The Miracle Typist’. It’s a true story of Leon’s father-in-law Tolek Klings, who was conscripted into the Polish army in the Second World War. However, the army is rife with anti-Semitism and Tolek is relentlessly tormented. What follows is an extraordinary odyssey that will take Tolek – via a daring escape from a Hungarian internment camp – to Palestine where his ability to touch-type earns him the title of ‘The Miracle Typist’, then on to fight in Egypt, Tobruk and Italy.
