Three Minutes of HopeThree Minutes of Hope: Hugo Gryn on the God Slot
(Continuum Books, 2010) 

Rabbi Hugo Gryn was born in the Carpathian town of Berehovo in 1930 and deported to Auschwitz at the age of 13. He was rabbi at the West London Synagogue for 32 years, but was perhaps best known for his 'ministry of the airwaves', particularly as a regular panellist on the BBC's Moral Maze. Hugo's gentle humour and compassion, his deep spirituality and unquenchable faith in humanity made a lasting impression on listeners and endeared him to millions.

A collection of his radio scripts, given a personal and historical context by Hugo Gryn's daughter, Naomi. “What remains of my father's God-slot legacy – apart from a handful of studio tapes digitised for posterity by the BBC and some home recordings on audio cassette – is a cardboard box of scripts, each illustrating from a different perspective the point that he most wanted to make, that life – all life – is a blessing, and a gift from God.”
