Allan’s book, The Tailors of Tomaszow, co-written with his mother Rena Margulies Chernoff, is a communal memoir and history of the survivors of Tomaszow-Mazowiecki, Poland.
Rena Margulies Chernoff is among the youngest survivors of the Holocaust. She was six when the Nazis invaded her hometown of Tomaszow-Mazowiecki, Poland, ten when she toiled in the Blizyn slave labor camp, and eleven when she stood behind the barbed wire of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Eventually she emigrated to the United States, earned a master’s degree and became a teacher.
