"This book is a profound and inspirational reminder of why you should never give up.”
- Bernard King, Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer, four-time NBA All-Star
From the grips of the Nazis to the top of the Olympic podium, from the cheap seats to center stage at Madison
Square Garden, from yellow stars to silver spoons, this complex tale traverses the spectrum of the human
experience to detail how perseverance, love, and legacy can survive through generations, carried on the
shoulders of a simple and beautiful game. By the Grace of the Game is a multi-generational family epic
detailing history’s only known journey from Auschwitz to the NBA.
Written by Dan Grunfeld. Foreword by Ray Allen, NBA Champion and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Council Member.
