Having endured the Nazi crucible of horror and deprivation, Leon Leyson emerged a man of extraordinary grace and tenderness. This slim memoir captures his unique voice and enormous spirit. It was my great privilege to meet the Leyson family when our children were quite young. A lasting friendship was forged. He is greatly missed. While he might have preferred to remain silent, Leon enriched many lives as he shared his story with quiet dignity. His book is a treasure for the ages. Kudos to everyone who made this publication possible.

    A difficult Memoir

    This is an easy read but also difficult material. It tells the sad story of a young victim of the atrocities perpetuated on Jews during WWII. An interesting angle on the Shindler's List movie.

    Enjoyable book

    It's considered a YA book so an easy read but also very touching. The author was only 10 when Germans invaded Poland. He lost two brothers during the holacost but thanks to Oskar Schindler, his parents, his sister, a brother and himself survived. I'm so glad he decided to share his story :)
