Description
Yaron Svoray discusses his book, “Blood From a Stone.” He begins by explaining that he was approached by a soldier on the French and German border who had buried 40 uncut diamonds. He talks about how these diamonds were taken from Jewish families during the Holocaust. Svoray discusses how it took him 12 years to eventually find the diamonds, and he was wanted by the Nazi party. He talks about how he partnered with the History Channel to make a documentary about the diamonds. He ends the interview by describing how the diamonds were given to charities that helped children.
