Is it possible that people living today died in the Holocaust? Rabbi Yonassan Gershom presents compelling evidence that supports this seemingly impossible phenomenon. Based on the stories of people he counselled, the author sheds new light on the subject of reincarnation and the divinity of the human soul. In addition to the fascinating case histories, Rabbi Gershom includes information on Jewish teachings regarding the afterlife, karmic healing, and prophecies. Available November, 1992. (A.R.E. Press)

I heard of this book from another teacher of metaphysics and was glad to be able to find a copy. (Trust Amazon books!) Ordinarily I avoid books and films about the holocaust (too gut wrenching) but being personally familiar with successful healings through past life regression (via hypnosis, psychic intervention, etc.) I was intrigued. Author Hasidic Rabbi Gershom seems a down-to-earth heart centered teacher and dedicated healer who evidently helped hundreds of people, Jewish and non Jewish, to uncover their past life traumas in the Nazi death camps. He found that many Nazi victims reincarnated in the two decades after WW2. Their memories under hypnosis were verified by checking records, facts, witnesses, old newspapers, etc. and their healings are powerful and impressive. He comments extensively on individual and group karma.

As an interfaith minister I was interested to learn more of the Hasidic and Kabala philosophy (they understand reincarnation) and found his description of Hasidic customs enlightening. The author's extensive explanation of the emphasis of genetics in Judaism is also fascinating, as far as it goes. His final message, including Hopi prophecy, is one of global spiritual unity and world peace.

This is intense heavy duty reading, not for the faint of heart but highly informative and evidential of the power of healing by the release of our past traumas.

good explanation of why the author feels that there has been a resurgence of conversion to judaism. iff you believe in reincarnation or genetic memory , this is a good book for you. I'm that age that he describes . (boomer) it helped me come to terms with my own reasons for conversion. gave copy to rabbi.

Beyond the Ashes, published in 1992, takes people's memories of prior incarnations during the Holocaust to consider what it means to be a conscious being with recollections that transcend an individual life. Had Rabbi Gershom written this book today, in 2015, he would be pressed to consider similar issues that confront humanity daily in a continuing, unremitting Holocaust. There is little doubt he is aware of the implications of current world events on individual lives and for humanity as a whole.
I read this book after reading Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder, a book that would cause most people of common sense to swear off reading horror stories ever again because of its faithful accounting of the murders that Rabbi Gershom describes in meeting some of those reincarnated souls. Gershom's book seemed like a good follow as a way of understanding the wanton devastation left by Hitler and Stalin, in a quasi-religious quest for Hitler to finally remove a perceived blight by Judaism and, in the case of Stalin, to remove any obstacle to his establishing the first communist state, obstacles that also included the murder of many Jews but not only Jews. The book did show that Stalin was a more inventive, prolific, and more personal murderer.
The question then becomes if Nazi Catholicism did not succeed and Stalinist Communism failed to remove the obstacles to some larger order, why did these people have to be killed? Why did they have to die in a larger sense, in a Cosmic sense? At this point in history, the same question might be asked in a much broader context. Why do there need to be wars in the Ukraine and in the Arab world? Wanton murder in Africa? Why do we learn nothing about ourselves as people and as a race? Why is history no longer taught in the public schools or more fully discussed in the media? Why are news agencies allowed to present lies and crass opinions instead of doing honest reporting? This is no different than what allowed two major powers to try to exterminated a race, indeed races, with a single pistol shot in the back of the head. What is it that makes a nation's culture adhere to poorly drawn fairytales about monster invasions rather than try to find a home under the stars?
There is no doubt that a good question far more useful than a good answer. This book will provide plenty of good questions for thoughtful people who feel lost in the world such as it is.
Rabbi Gershom does not answer these questions, but he tries and he does it with heart and with sense.

A worthwhile book to read .Having being born in Southwest Texas I was extremely surprised when I started having recollections of a past life that ended in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. I even had difficulty to begin reading this book like other materials related to the Holocaust, including images, etc. I did buy the movie , "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas", but despite being fictional I find it too emotionally difficult to watch.For whatever reason my interest in the Jewish faith is minimal, so it might had nothing to do with my arrest since people were taken away for various reasons. Despite mentioning karma in the book it failed to give reasons for the karma of souls that let our experiencing such horrific traumas. Curiously during the same time period my future father was in the Army fighting the Japanese in the Pacific as a young man.

This book stands out for its sensitive subject matter--that of Holocaust victims who later reincarnate. But it's also full of interesting info regarding the Jewish religion. I thoroughly enjoyed Rabbi Gershom's voice in print, he has that knack for writing where you feel you're simply sitting with a good friend, hearing fascinating tales.

For anyone interested in reincarnation this one's a KEEPER.
