When Leon Leyson was 10, the life he knew vanished. He was Jewish, in Poland, and the Germans of the Third Reich wanted all Jews dead. However, one man—Oskar Schindler—was a reluctant Nazi who took Jews from the concentration camps to work in his factories, thereby saving their lives.

A beautiful memoir of Schindler's youngest survivor. I found it interesting that after his moving to the U.S. he realized that discrimination existed everywhere. The one line in the book I clearly remember is: "Oskar Schindler proves that one person can stand up to evil and make a difference."

An amazing biographical account by the youngest survivor on Schindler's list. Moving, brilliant, and memorable.

NYPL Staff Pick
The youngest Holocaust survivor on Oskar Schindler’s famous “list” tells his story at last -- bringing a child’s perspective to the Nazi Occupation of Warsaw and the remarkable courage needed to live through those horrifying times.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in reading. The plot pulls you in and keeps you captured. I couldn't put this book down at all.
