From Fragment to Whole

The foreword From Fragment to Whole, written by Arielle Berger and Jody Spiegel, provides the background to how Rabbi Pinchas Hirschprung’s 1944 Yiddish manuscript came to the Azrieli Foundation’s publishing program and was given a new life and audience through its transformation into the new 2016 edition, The Vale of Tears.

Arielle Berger is the Managing Editor of the Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program at the Azrieli Foundation, where she has worked since 2010. She has managed the publication of more than 40 memoirs, including the foundation’s first anthology, an award-winning volume focusing on women’s survival during the Holocaust. Arielle has spoken about editing survivor memoirs and the future of Holocaust testimonies at a variety of events.
