At a time when many are looking for stories and examples of individuals who have triumphed in adversity – for ways our own unique ingenuity, humor, resilience, and belief in ourselves can carry us out of the depths of despair back into the light of an exciting new life we bring you an unbelievable true story that will inspire and bring joy. We welcome renowned author, Joshua M. Green, to discuss his newest release, Unstoppable: Siggi B. Wilzig’s Astonishing Journey from Auschwitz Survivor to Wall Street Legend.
Unstoppable is a one-of a kind rags-to-riches adventure that follows a young boy from starvation on death marches, to dinner at the White House, and recounts the volcanic, miraculous life of Siggi Wilzig, who survived the Holocaust to become one of the biggest—and most unexpected—successes in postwar American business.
Greene shares a captivating story birthed from surprising and devastating circumstances that inspires the soul. Aristotle Onassis is quoted as saying, “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” And the story of Siggi B. Wilzig captures the essence of this quote remarkably. You won’t want to miss this moving and powerful hour that will captivate you emotionally as we discover the illuminating life of Siggi B. Wilzig, a force of nature: an immigrant who arrived in New York penniless, with no formal education, and proceeded to build a $4 billion oil-and-banking empire. But this is not just the story of financial success against all odds. It’s a survivor story in a category of its own – one that does not dwell on tragedy but rather celebrates human ingenuity and the power of faith. We learn about Siggi’s Lucky 11 Lessons for Success, stories of survival and his charismatic and force of nature personality, the power of human resilience, hope plus so much more!
A riveting hour from beginning to end with Joshua M. Green, a popular lecturer on Holocaust history and author whose biographies have sold more than a half-million copies worldwide. Green’s groundbreaking book on the Dachau war crimes trials, Justice at Dachau: The Trails of an American Prosecutor, was deemed “riveting—history writing at its best” by Douglas Brinkley, presidential historian for CNN. His renowned work on survival testimony, Witness: Voices from the Holocaust, was the basis of a feature documentary for national PBS and chosen as “One of the Best Holocaust Films” by Facets Media.
