    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    You visited my school, Bishop Gorman, about two weeks ago. Over the years I have read many different Holocaust books, but yours is by far the best. You have inspired me to never give up. You are one of the strongest people I have ever met/known about. I look up to you and am proud that I got to read your book. I have passed the book onto my friend and told her to read it. Thank you so much!

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    Hello. My name is Alexis. Yesterday you just visited my school. And I must say it was a honnor to meet you. Your book has really inspired me. I always seem to think that when my parents ask me to do chores that its the worst and harddest thing. But after reading “My Brothers Voice” in Ms. Rounds class, I learned that life could be much worst. I really appreciate you coming to my school. It was an expierence I will never forgett. I can promise you that! Thank you again! The people here at Faiss enjoyed it a lot! Thank you agian.

    Hallo Mr. Nasser, my name is Carlos. i went to your presentation. I tjought it was excitiing. After your presentation I noticed that you lived through a lot of killing. I feel your pain because I’ve also seen a lot of killing in my live. I hate what the Nazi’s did to not just your family, but all the Jews.the part I felt the most was when the Nazi killed the baby. and killied the mom. Sorry for not buying your book.

  17. Alexis V. says:

    My Brothers Voice was an excellent book. It can make you cry, or laugh. It is filled with many adventures that are based on a true story. Some of the events that occur in this book are unimaginable.
    In the beginning of the book it tells what happened on their way to the concentration camp. What they were able to bring wear or eat. It told of what happened to some of the unl;ucky ones when they arrived at the camp.
    Around the middle of the book is when their families got split apart. All of the women and children went to one side and al of the men went to the opposite side. It tells when they transfor camps and what they had to do to satisfy the S.S. Also, what happens when they get sick and they cannot work anymore.
    Then the ending of the book was great but I canot spoil the ending.


  18. Emilia says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    It was amazing that you came to our school yesterday! Your stories touched me so much and im sure many people feel the same way.I greatly apprecite that you shared your stories with my school and me! It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to reading your book! :]

  19. elena(: says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    It was a pleasure to have you at our school Wilbur & Theresa Faiss middle school. It was a life changing excpirience. Reading your book has reminded me how good I have it in life. I didn’t realize until now. I constantly complain if I don’t get what I want that week. And feel that I have the worst life in the world and couldn’t get worst. Then listening to you that day I know that you went through all of that and took it. You never complained. You really have changed my perspective. Thank you for this lesson that I will never forget this.

  21. Trudy Cohen says:

    I took my 3 sons to hear your speak at the library. You had such a profound effect on them. They left that day with a deeper appreciation of each other. For that , I am grateful. I then read your book. I learned so much from your amazing strength. I also am confident that God was looking out for you and your brother was too. I thank you for your efforts in educating people not only on the horrific details of the Holocaust but also on the benefits of never giving up, no matter what the circumstances may be. Your book is an amazing tribute to your relationship with your brother. Thank you for being the epitome of a “survivor”!

  22. Maddi A. says:

    Wow that was a very moving story I was very into your story I coudn’t believe what you’ve been through. We’ve been studying about the Holocaust but now I finally know what it really felt like from a survivors perspective. Thank- you for coming to our school and teaching us what you went through. I was very infomed and now I feel I can interpret the stories more now that you have made us step in your shoes and have at least some kind of perspective on it but I know we will never feel the way you felt. And i will say it once again Thank- you.

  23. Jordyn says:

    Your were very inspirational. Your speach definitely moved me. I will always remember you and you are a blessing from God to be able to speak to us at Faith Lutheran. You have moved me a lot, I thank you so much for coming and motivating me to stay strong! God Bless!

  24. Chris O.B says:

    Dear Mr.Nasser,
    Your stroies have made me think about the holocaust and how bad the Some of the Nazis were. I was very shaocked about all those sad stories you have said. This was God’s Plan to guide you through the holocaust. I hope God will help you and i wish you the best of luck for ever. 😛

  25. Cole C. says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    i think that your talk yesterday at my school was inspirational. i hope that you keep on talking about it to more schools so that they can learn about your experience. im also sorry about what happened to you in the concentration camps. lastly, i hope that i see you again! 🙂

  29. Ken says:

    THankyou for coming to our school :@

  30. Kennedy says:

    Thank you so much for coming and telling us about our school. I learned so much by you coming here, and I am very happy that you came. I learned that not all of the people in the Holocast have a number on there arm. Thank you so much for teaching me that not all of the Germans are the bad guys, that just because someone was born in Germany tha doesn’t mean that they were bad. Thank you again and please write back!!

  31. Ann Cook says:

    Thank you so much for your time!

  33. Austin says:

    Your talk really opened many peoples eyes. I thank you for taking time out of your day to talk to us. I appreciate it, we all do. Your story really shows a good idea of the horrors the Nazi’s preformed. I feel sorry for your losses in life, and now I appreciate my family much more after you told me you lost your whole family and your sister. God has really blessed you though, he saved you from the Nazi’s horror, and gave you the oppertunity to talk to us. Mr. Nasser, even when I think my life is horrible, I will remember your dismal time in camp, and remember my life isn’t all that bad. Thankyou Mr. Nasser may God be with you.

  34. Jordan Surina says:

    Dear Mr Nasser,
    You visted my school just yesterday, Faith Lutheran! I have read many Holocaust books but yours is the best! Your speech realy made me realize how hard it was to actually live through the Holocaust and survior from it. My favorite part was when you told us about your pocket knife, you stuck it up where the sun dosen’t shine! Me and my friends still talk about it. I also liked when you told us about your diary. I sort of think the sticking your knife were the sun dosen’t shine sort of saced you because when you showed the gaurd your carving and he wanted one and he gave you pens and more food for you and you brother! Hope you can live long enough to keep telling about your brother and his story! “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever” Psalm 107:1.

  37. Hayden Knight says:

    Mr. Nasser I thankyou for Coming to my school and teaching me about the hardships of the holocaust and the life of being in the camps. I understand the you went through pain, and suffering. I now know that if this ever happens again i will try to stop this and that i will never let it happen again.

  38. Devin says:

    I just saw Mr. Nasser at school beause he came to talk with us and he was great. He told us all about when he was in the Holoaust. He waas lucky he was only in there for a year beause most people were in there for a few years

  39. Justin Odor says:

    When you came to talk at my school, Faith Lutheran, it was very inspiring. I learned so much when you talked and i finally understood the holocaust. I felt really sad though because you and so many other ppl that were insint were beaten, killed, hurt, and so much more for absolutly no reason. Thank you so much for coming to my school and telling us your story.

  40. A student at FLHS says:

    I was at your speech yesterday at Faith Luheran. This speech was very motivational and helped me love my family a little more. You are an inspiration because you are a strong level headed man. When you saw your uncle die right in front of you shows that strength. Thank you for your support and telling me about your expereiences with me.

  41. Nikos P. says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,

    Hi Mr. Nasser my name is Nikos Povilaitis and i am in the 6th grade. I am from Faith Lutheran Jr./Sr high school. I loved your sppech,but i was also very sad. The Holocaust was such a terrible thing that happended to the Jews. I can’t believe that the Nazi’s could do such a thing to the Jews. I can’t believe that you were the only surviver of your 21 family members i was shocked. Your motivated me to start speeking about how the holocasut changed the world.

    May God Bless!


  43. Kennedy : ) says:

Keep talking because your story is amazing!

  44. Gabbie says:

My favorite part of your speech was when you were talking about your knife and you said you shoved it up were the sun doesnt shine. Everyone still talks about it because the thought of it was hilarious. I also followed your directions when you told us to wrap our arms around our parents and say I love you. and i did what i was told and gave them an additional hug and told them that this is for Mr. Nazzer.

The stories about your family was truly amazing. I was shocked when I heard that out of your 21 family members, only you survived! Your strength and will must have been great. Another awesome thing was that you had survived the Holocaust and you fought your way through all of these hard obstacles.

  48. Emily Smith says:

  54. chad says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    You came to my school, Faith Lutheran Jr. Sr. High School. While i was listening to you i could tell the passion in your voice. It was amazing to see a person from the Holocaust look so healthy and yet kind of joyful after that kind of experience. I enjyed your performance and I wish we had more time with you so i could find out more about you; I am excited to read your book.


  55. Vanessa Lee says:

    Hi!! I was really excited when my teacher told me that you were coming. We were learning about the Holocaust when you came, and we knew how horrible it was. I was really excited, and I have questions that I didn’t ask you when you came. First, do you know any survivors from the Holocaust? I learned what happened to the Nazis, and I thought they were excecuted on the court. I really feel terrible for what happedned to you, and I was surprised that from 21 of your family, you were the only survivor. And, I promise you that this will naver happen again.

  56. max bramble says:

    dear mr nasser
    thanks so much for visiting my school faith lutheran jr/sr high school i learned more about the hollocast thanks again

  57. Kea Lani Jiu says:

    Hello i am Kea Lani Jiu from Faith lutheran Jr./Sr. High school. I was at your speech the other day i m soooooooooo sorry you lost your family. I wish i could help. I saw some people cry i was on the edge of crying. I wish you could hug your family. You are so brave. I couldn’t do that what you did. It was amazing. I wish i couldbe more like you, you are amazing. Why did you get beaten even though you might not respond i just want to say that you were amazing. and if you do what was it like at camp. If you could make a change in life what would it be? It was amazing how you talked about God.

  58. Lynsey says:

    Hi! my name is Lynsey. i am from Faith Lutheran. when i listened to your speech, i could really feel your pain. i could picture every moment in my head of what you were going through. i am so sorry about your family. it must have been really hard to just continue you life like that. my favorite part of you speech was when you were laying with your brother. This summer i am going to read your book. my sister Chelsea read your book in the 6th grade when she met you. she said that it gave her a conpletly different look on the holocaust. i hope to talk to you again. i loved your speech!

  59. Trevor Driscoll says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    Hi, my name is Trevor Driscoll and i am a 6th grader at Faith Lutheran Jr/Sr High. I read your book and i thought it was amazing how you survived the brutality of the Nazis. I have 2 little brothers and i can’t imagine the pain you must have felt by losing your family. If i put myself in your shoes 66 years ago i would be very scared and probably know what to do. You had to use your imagination to find ways to survive. I think you are an inspiration to all who know you and also a call to be better. You had to fight to survive and even though we don’t, i know we all should try our best.

  60. Liva says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    Yesterday you visited my school, Faith Lutheran Jr/Sr High School in Las Vegas, Nevada.I was very touched by your speech and i enjoyed it. I have always been very interested in the Holocaust and this was a great opportunity for me to learn more about real experiences. I know that you experienced something totally indescribable and that we will never fully understand what you went through. The thing is that, it can never happen again… Nothing this terrible will ever be able to happen again. Your life was in the hands of God and you trusted him, your faith must have grown very much. You have inspired me to grown closer to God and to be more accepting of my family and to be more thankful for what i have.
    It was a pleasure to hear you speak,

  61. John Molchon says:

    My name is I jusJohn Molchon and i am from Faith lutheran i wanted toi wanted u to contact u because you have benn through so much and tell me more about the holocaust. please contack me. Thank you for reading this mesage.

  62. Liva says:

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    You came to my school to speak yesterday at Faith Lutheran Jr/Sr High School.I was very touched by your speech and i have always been interested in the Holocaust.I purchased your book and cant wait to read it.i know that the pain you went through was unbearable and that no one else has really physically or emotionally gone through what you have.You must have grown extremely close to God and you have inspired me to do the same. Your courage helps me to remember what i have and to be appreciative about it. Thank you for the uplifting speech. and i will always remember…never again…never again can something like this happen…never

  63. saira says:

    Dear Mr.Nasser,I learned alot from your presentation!I liked it alot too!I had some questions too that you couldn`t answer.One of my questions were,”How many members of your family survived the holocaust?”

  64. Tiffany says:

    Hello Mr. Nasser!

    Rescently in Feb. you visited my school, Immanuel First Lutheran. I would like to thank you for taking your time to visit us. Sadly, our school will not be opening for the 2009-2010 school year. Please keep us in your prayers and I will be keeping you in my prayers also. I hope you have a great summer and keep on doing what you’re doing.


  65. haley says:

    Hello Mr.Nasser,

    I was one of the kids at faith lkutheran to hear your painfull speach i wish there was some way i could help you and i hope you never lose faith in a way that you are a very strong man and that you were able to survive the nazi’s brutal and harsh punishments and i have never felt so sorry for some one this bad as i do for you and please Mr. Nasser write back and i wish you a long life.

    With hope,

  66. Dear SAIRA.
    To answer your question, out of 21 taken away from our family by the Nazis to Concentration Camps, I was the only one who survived. I did have
    an Aunt,Uncles and Cousins, who were saved by Raoul Wallenberg the Swedish diplomat. He saved 24,000 Hungarian Jews in Budapest.
    The pictures I have in the book were saved by my Aunt
    and Cousins.
    To all my friends and audiances. Thank you for your support, and the thousands of letters I’ve received, expressing gratitude. These letters and the promise to my Brother, keeps me going, to spread “Family Values” and the apprecciation of “Fredom”
    God bless you all.
    Your friend:

  72. Dear Mr. Nasser,

    Thank you for your 10/12/09 presentation at the College of Southern Nevada. Although I’ve had the priviledge of hearing you speak before, each time
    creates new awareness and gratitude for your efforts to make sure the world Never Forgets!

    Your words echo those of my Grandmother, whose stories intermingled with the soundtrack of my 1950’s suburban American childhood, and provided the basis of my life-long commitment to keeping alive the stories, and therefore the memories,of those who were lost.

    As a Writing Instructor at CSN, I was able to make good use of your Teacher’s Guide, and grateful that my students were able to attend the presentation.
    They were very moved by your words.

    Thank you for dedicating your life in honor of
    those who did not get to live their own lives.

    Please let me know if I can ever be of any assistance.
    In the words of my Grandmother, “You should live and be well.”

    Warmest regards,

    Joanne D.Gilbert, M.Ed

    Dear Mr. Nasser,
    I have just had the privilege and honor of meeting you and hearing you speak this morning (Oct.18th at the Jewish Boys and Girls Scout First Kinus up on Mt. Charleston). I have seen movies, heard stories, read books but none have moved me so profoundly as your telling of events. I left your lecture with a reason to live life better, to do it for those who were not given the opportunity to live theirs at all. You inspired me to re-evaluate my family values and look for new reasons to thank G-d.
    I am truly sorry for the family you lost and the horror you lived through but I am also grateful that you share you experiences with us, the next generation of Jews especially, for you are the hope that NEVER AGAIN will be never again.

    My sincere thanks,
    Jacqueline Markowitz

    My Brother’s Voice by Stephen “Pista” Nasser is a very convincing, true story about a young, teenage, Jewish Hungarian boy who survived the Nazi holocaust. I found the book to be very interesting, educational, and uplifting. I experienced the complete spectrum of emotions including smiling, laughing, crying, sadness, sorrow, and anger (towards the SS killers). Even though the Nazis and particularly the SS officers were despicable, there were some good Germans such as the potato farmer, the Wehrmacht guard who purchased Pista’s carvings for food, and the good engineer who headed the bridge project and saved Pista twice from a nasty SS officer. These were the good Germans. \

    Pista Nasser received more than his share of hardships and beatings; however, because of his ingenuity, he was able to succeed in spite of the roadblocks placed before him. He was definitely a survivor. The great love between Pista and his older brother Andris and his subsequent death, the brutality of the Nazis in murdering his baby cousin Peter, and the horrors committed at Auschwitz are why this book had to be written even after keeping the entire story a secret for over 50 years.

    It was hilarious how Pista smuggled a 2-inch knife in to the concentration camp by inserting it up his anal passage. It’s a good thing that they didn’t have metal detectors as we have these days. The strong family ties are heartwarming. After the war ended, Pista’s journey back to his home in Budapest and all of the obstacles he overcame doing it can only be credited to Providence. There were so many times that he could have been caught and thrown into prison. His relationship with his girlfriend is heartwarming, which added a lot to the book. My Brother’s Voice is a must read. I recommend it highly to all people who enjoy true stories and to be truly uplifted.

  78. Hi, I have just finished reading your book and like many others before me I want to thank you for taking the courage to write such harrowing details of that part of your life. I am heart sorry that all your family perished but rest assured they are looking down at you with immense pride and joy to see you pick yourself up, dust yourself down, “walk tall – walk straight and look the world right in the eye” and fight for your life, for your freedom.
    I am so happy that you were able to have a good rest-of-your-life with your own family…..enjoy them!!

    Hi Mr. Nasser! I just want to say that I just read your book the other day for a book report we need to do and I’m glad I picked yours. I mostly don’t read alot of non-fiction books but I’m happy that there is a good book that shows a tragedy of what happened in Germany that ends up showing them who’s boss! “My Brother’s Voice” could rival “The Diary of Anne Frank”. I’m really excited to meet you when you come to my school in January!
