I Just Made it Up — How Could I Forget It?

Holocaust survivors write book based on their lives

WESTWOOD: Fund-raiser in Westwood celebrates release of testimonials

With their Academy Award in hand, producers of the film “The Last Days” gathered with some of those featured in the documentary to launch a book, of the same title, based on the experiences of Holocaust survivors.

Three survivors — Bill Basch, Renee Firestone and Dario Gabbai — signed copies of the book at a fund-raiser hosted by California Pizza Kitchen in Westwood on July 20.


While Gabbai was in Auschwitz, he worked as an inmate moving bodies from the gas chambers to the crematoria.

“You can never forget these things,” Gabbai said.
