In 2007, Holocaust survivor Joe Rubinstein told author Nancy Sprowell Geise that he would never share his experiences at Auschwitz and several of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps. Five years later, he changed his mind and asked Nancy to tell his amazing story.

Shortly after its release, Auschwitz #34207 – The Joe Rubinstein Story became an Amazon #1 Best Seller. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum awarded Nancy with their Coin of Excellence Award. Nancy challenges her audiences, “How do you respond to adversity?”

Author Shares Joe Rubinstein Story Around the World

Nancy Geise has made it her life mission to share Joe’s remarkable story, including in 2018 with the guides and volunteers at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum (Oswiecim, Poland), as part of their annual training.

She has been invited to speak at the United States Library of Congress and The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C., and at the 75th Commemoration of the Liquidation of the Ghettos in Joe’s hometown of Radom, Poland.

Business Leaders and Educators alike have found powerful messages of hope and inspiration for their employees and students by Joe’s example of never giving in to despair, facing life challenges, and choosing to live a joy-filled life.

Joe’s story is a triumph of the human spirit with life lessons for us all.
