Flight From Fear is the Holocaust memoir of Rabbi Samuel Cywiak, who was born
in Wyszków, Poland in 1920. It chronicles the six years during World War II where,
not only did he survive the wraths of both Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin and
witness many horrors throughout Europe, but he was ordained a rabbi, became a
husband and father, and witnessed and experienced many miracles.
He was ordained by Rabbi Chaim ben Zion Notealevitz in New York and later
certified fit in matters of Jewish legal questions by the great Moshe Feinstein. Rabbi
Cywiak was honored by former President of Venezuela, Carlos Andres Perez, for
community service and has had a distinguished career as an Orthodox Rabbi, mohel,
and cantor for over sixty years now.
