Dr. Robert O. Fisch is an eminent pediatrician and visual artist, as well as Holocaust survivor. The text in Light from the Yellow Star exudes an optimism and hopefulness about life, even though it recounts a personal story of terrible suffering.
Quotations throughout the text are liberal translations from the gravestones in the memorial concentration camp cemetery in Budapest where the author's father, a victim of the camps, is buried. They act as the book's second narrative, because the reader takes an imaginary walk through the Budapest cemetery by encountering these lines while progressing through the book.
The Yellow Star Foundation builds on the great success of Dr. Robert Fisch's book to teach junior high and high school students about the Holocaust. The Yellow Star Foundation website includes lesson plans, video clips, a teachers’ forum, classroom ideas, links to resources (books, videos, and web sites), classroom dos and don’ts, information about the Holocaust, and profiles of projects successfully used in other parts of the country.
