About the Book
From the grips of the Nazis to the top of the Olympic podium, from the cheap seats to center stage at Madison Square Garden, from yellow stars to silver spoons, this complex tale traverses the spectrum of the human experience to detail how perseverance, love, and legacy can survive through generations, carried on the shoulders of a simple and beautiful game. By the Grace of the Game is a multi-generational family epic detailing history’s only known journey from Auschwitz to the NBA.
Written by Dan Grunfeld, son of University of Tennessee basketball legend Ernie Grunfeld. Foreword by Ray Allen, NBA Champion and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Council Member. Purchase the book today.
