A Collection of stories and recipes
published by The Caras Family
The Holocaust Survivor Cookbook and its sequel Miracles & Meals provide food for both body and soul. Each recipe is accompanied by a personal story of the Holocaust – of courage, loss, suffering, love, support, caring, life, death and miracles of survival. The book shares photos of Holocaust victims and survivors along with hundreds of recipes and memories. Each of the stories and recipes was lovingly collected from around the world by Joanne Caras and her family.
Sales from "The Holocaust Survivor Cookbook" and the second volume "Miracles & Meals" benefit the Israeli soup kitchen Carmel Ha'ir. The goal is to sell 6 million cookbooks as a tribute to the memory of those Jews who did not survive the Holocaust. In addition, Jewish groups around the world offer the books as fundraisers. Both cookbooks are available to be downloaded as e-books as well. To date, the books have raised $600,000.
