Gingold is a freelance writer and second-generation Holocaust survivor. His book “Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boy” is the story of how his father, grandparents, and other family members survived and escaped the Warsaw Ghetto.
Gingold said that while he was growing up, he knew very little about his family’s struggles before and during World War II.
“My grandparents and father never talked about the Warsaw Ghetto or living in Nazi-controlled territory, other than (to say) it happened, they were there, and they got out — somehow,” Gingold said.
