Yoga and the Holocaust
The Lives of Three Mystic Witnesses
In this eye-opening exploration of Holocaust-era biographies, the popular lecturer Joshua M. Greene (Yogesvara) reveals how three practitioners raised in mystic traditions processed their fate at the hands of Nazi killers. With striking visual imagery, readings from firsthand accounts, and excerpts from witness narratives, Greene brings to life the memorable stories of the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, hanged for having joined the effort to assassinate Hitler; the Sufi Princess Noor Inayat Khan, executed for her extraordinary work as a French underground operative; and Rabbi Kalman Shapira, murdered by the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto for having led illegal study groups and meditations. Here is a fitting way for the Yoga community to honor Holocaust remembrance.
