Meet the Author: Joseph Gosler

Meet Joseph Gosler, the author of Searching for Home: The Impact of WWII on a Hidden Child. This is a personal memoir of a child survivor that spans from WWII to the late 20th century. A story of a young boy, who becomes a man, ever wandering and struggling to find himself. His parents, emotionally gutted from their own wartime experiences, are barely able to care for themselves, let alone this young stranger.


This beautiful poignant memoir of a very young Jewish child hidden with a Christian family in Holland during the Holocaust powerfully draws the reader in, while giving important historical and psychological context to the lifelong emotional devastation experienced by many child Holocaust survivors. The author’s inspiring journey of perseverance offers hope for redemption to others. – Israela Meyerstein, MSW, Author of Bridge to Healing: Finding Strength to Cope with Illness and Miracle Nation: Seventy Stories about the Spirit of Israel.
