The Journey of Sarah Levi-Bondi by R. P. Toister

The Journey of Sarah Levi-Bondi by R. P. Toister

With simple but haunting allure, The Journey of Sarah Levi-Bondi takes you on a young girl’s journey from the Jewish ghetto in Rome in 1943 to New York City in where she struggles to honor her father’s last request of her:

Devi fare qualcosa di buono per il mondo.
You have to do something good for the world.

In the face of another heartbreaking tragedy, Sarah earns her MD-PhD degrees and eventually directs the pediatric research project to cure childhood leukemia at Rockefeller University.

After two successful trial treatments, President Gerald Ford and the U.S. government make an unfathomable request of Sarah and her team: to treat the grandson of the Nazi criminal who arranged the transport of more than 1,000 Italian Jews, including her family, to Auschwitz in 1943, where they were all sent to the gas chambers upon arrival.

Sarah’s decision—and the surprise conclusion of her journey—underscore the irony and significance of one life.
