The photograph is iconic: A little boy in short pants and a hat; his face crumpling with fear; his hands in the air. Standing behind him to the right is a Nazi soldier, submachine gun in hand. This single picture returns an entire horrific era of the Holocaust to its human level. In the same way, Daniel Porat's debut book presents the story of Nazism through the lives of five people; three SS officers of different ranks and two Jewish victims; one a teenage girl; the other, a young boy. In words and sixty-two pictures, he traces these five disparate lives from their formative years to the end of World War II and beyond. Based on extensive research and oral interviews, The Boy throws a bright floodlight on this almost unimaginable epoch. Now in paperback and NOOK Book.
