Solly Ganor, a Holocaust survivor, lives in Herzelia Pituach, Israel.
Mr. Ganor kept a diary while in the Kovno ghetto, promising his friends that
if he should survive the Holocaust, he would tell the world what happened.
For 50 years, he shied away from the subject until a historian came to
Jerusalem with the person who saved his life at the end of the World War
Two. He was a Japanese American soldier by the name of Clarence Matsomura of
the 522 artillery battalion. This emotional reunion resulted in the
publication of his diary, "Light One Candle."
Mr. Ganor's diary has been recommended by Eli Wiesel and is taught in high
schools in Germany and Japan. He has fulfilled his promise to his perished
friends, finally lighting one candle for them.
