In this episode, I sit down with author Max Friedman to discuss his latest book, "Painful Joy." The book explores the experiences of Max's parents during the Jewish Holocaust, and the impact that this had on Max's life growing up. We delve into the history of the Holocaust and its effects on subsequent generations, as well as the process of writing such a personal and emotional book. Max shares with us his perspective on the importance of remembering and honoring the victims of the Holocaust, and why we need to continue to tell these stories. This is a powerful and moving conversation that will leave you with a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and its ongoing impact on the world today.
