Hasidic Tales of the Holocaust

by Yaffa Eliach. Oxford, $15.95. The stories Ms. Eliach has collected from Hasidic survivors of Nazi death camps are moving celebrations of courage in adversity and faith in both God and mankind. They imply moral lessons, as Hasidic tales traditionally should, and are fine stories in themselves, which is also a traditional requirement.
