Giants: the Dwarfs of Auschwitz: The Extraordinary Story of the Lilliput Troupe
Robson Press, January 2013. Hardcover. Used - Very Good / Very Good. Item #208834
In this account of the Ovitz family, seven of whose ten members were dwarves, readers bear witness to the terrible irony of the Ovitz's fate: being burdened with dwarfism helped them to endure the Holocaust. Through research and interviews with the youngest Ovitz daughter, Perla, the troupe's last surviving memeber, and other relatives, the authors weave the tale of a beloved and successful family of performers who were famous entertainers in Central Europe until the Nazis deported them to Auschwitz in May 1944.
