Americans first heard about a “thousand points of light” from George Bush Sr. when he was campaigning for the presidency of the United States in 1988. Now, a Polish Catholic survivor of Auschwitz is starting a different kind of campaign to promote his own “thousand points of light.”
Michael Preisler feels “thousand points of truth” would be a more precise description. What are these thousand points? They are a thousand copies of Andrew Hempel’s book about a six-year period Preisler lived through and its title is simply “ Poland in World War II.” It will be distributed by the Holocaust Documentation Committee of the Polish American Congress where Preisler is co-chair.
