About the Author

George Salton survived ten Nazi concentration camps and after living in Displaced Person Camps in Germany for two years, he emigrated to the United States in 1947 where he changed his name to George Salton and forged a new life. He proudly served in the U.S. Army and became an American citizen. He met the love of his life, Ruth, also a Holocaust survivor. They married and raised three children, Henry, Alan, and Anna. Using the GI Bill, Salton attended college classes at night where he earned a bachelor's degree in physics and a master's degree in electrical engineering from Syracuse University. George Salton had a distinguished career with the Department of Defense eventually becoming Director of Defense Communications at the Pentagon. After 35 years of government service, George became an executive in the aerospace industry. In 1998, George traveled with his family to Poland to share his Holocaust story and to grieve his beloved parents at the Belzec camp where they had been murdered. In 2002 George and his daughter, Anna, co-wrote his bestselling memoir, The 23rd Psalm. He spent many years speaking and sharing his story and teaching the lessons of the Holocaust which are becoming ever more critical to humanity. He died after a sudden illness at the age of 88 on March 13, 2016.

Anna Salton Eisen grew up in a home where her parents' Holocaust experiences were a well-kept secret. She later moved to Texas where she became active in the Jewish community as a founding member of the first synagogue in her area. Serving as a docent for the Dallas Holocaust Museum and an interviewer for the Steven Spielberg's Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, Salton Eisen continued to search for information about her family's survival and destruction in the Holocaust. In 2001, she co-authored with her father The 23rd Psalm: A Holocaust Memoir. Anna is also author of the forthcoming memoir, Pillar of Salt: A Daughter's Life Growing Up in the Shadow of the Holocaust and the subject of a forthcoming new documentary film about her father's life. This new edition expands this memoir with extensive research into the genealogy of her family and her discovery of many original documents which record her father's concentration camp experience. Salton Eisen and her family reside in Westlake, Texas.
