NO PAST TENSE

LOVE AND SURVIVAL IN THE SHADOW OF THE HOLOCAUST

by D.Z. Stone

No Past Tense is the biography of Katarina (Kati) Kellner and William (Willi) Salcer, two Czech Jews who as teenagers were swept up by the Holocaust in Hungary and survived Auschwitz and Mauthausen, respectively.

Covering their entire lives, weaving in first person 'real time' voices as if watching a documentary about themselves, the unique structure of No Past Tense provides a distinctive 'whole life' view of the Holocaust.

"Kati and Willi Salcers' resilience in the face of terror demonstrates how nothing can stop us from living our lives. They are the definition of inspiration."
