THE LAST JEW OF ROTTERDAM is a powerful and gripping testimony of a man who found Jesus Christ in the midst of great trial and tribulation. While his faith was yet young and forming, Ernest Cassutto had so much stripped from him, so much uncertainty thrust upon him, facing things that would have shaken the foundations of even the most seasoned of Christians; yet his faith only grew as he experienced the powerful hand of a faithful God holding him through it all.

I had never heard of this man, but having just finished THE HIDING PLACE by Corrie Ten Boom I was interested in this particular period and subject. Reverend Cassuto tells a compelling story, much of which takes place in and around some of the same places referenced in Ten Boom's book. Ernie Cassuto, a nominal Jew, came to faith in Christ about the time Germany invaded Holland. An interesting and uplifting read, as well as a testament to the Sovereignty of God!

I read this one in a day. It's the story of a young Dutch Jew during WWII, combined with the story of the young girl who became his wife. It's not as heavy as many other WWII stories, though there was still much hardship involved. I appreciated the personal narrative and the strong Christian witness. It's amazing how Ernie's entire family becomes Christians through the events of the war, even though they weren't all together.

This book is about my grandparents, so naturally, I thought it was amazing.

This book by a Christian Jew tells the story of Casutto's escape from Nazi hands at the end of WWII. It was amazing to hear of the many, many brave Dutchmen working in the Underground who risked - and gave - their lives in order to preserve Jewish families. They played some gutsy and ingenuous tricks on the Nazis in that tortuous game of life or death hide and seek.

A story of World War II. Excellent. It's well worth reading. Follow the story of Ernest Casutto through World War II in the Netherlands. Understand a Jew's encounter with Jesus, and meet those whom his life touched during that time.
Brian Williams
This is an action packed adventure of a Jewish man coming to faith in Jesus during the holocaust. I've read a ton of testimonies of Jews who have come to faith in Jesus. This is one of my favorites. Please read this.
Ramonita Rodriguez
touching story of a Holocaust survivor...trials, tribulations...his conversion to Christianity...the power of forgiveness and how he continued to serve the Lord after the liberation of Auschwitz...powerful!!!
Nora
Heartbreaking and inspirational. It is amazing what is in the depths of a man's soul. Jews who later on accept Jesus as savior showed steadfast faith. A great read!
Viktoriaf
A biographical novel.
Story of a simple Jewish boy who helped by people survives the WWII. He survives spiritually which is equally important.
