Roman Kent is a survivor in every sense of the word. Born Roman Kniker and raised in Lodz, Poland, his happy, carefree youth was turned upside down in 1939 with the arrival of the German Army literally at his familys doorsteps. Courage Was My Only Option is the heartrending but ultimately uplifting story of one mans journey to hell and back. In classic rags to riches style, Kent uses the hard-learned lessons of his youth and time spent in concentration camps to become first a successful businessman in the U.S., then an internationally known voice for Holocaust survivors. Whether he is relating the story of the beloved family dog, Lala (who would also fall victim to Nazi cruelty) or recounting his work with Presidents, Senators, Ambassadors, and a multitude of foreign dignitaries (Bill Clinton and Al Gore among them) to restore the rights and lost dignity of his fellow survivors, Kents tale will become an inspiration to all who read his life story.
