Gideon by Chester Aaron

"The important thing, Gideon, is to survive. In any way at any cost, survive. By surviving you can not only fight back, you can carry the story of what is happening in this ghetto. You are of no use to our people dead." The words of his father ring in Gideon's ears. They haunt him everywhere: on the Nazi-patrolled streets of the Warsaw Ghetto where he and his family are trapped; on the Aryan side, "cleansed of Jews," where he and a ruthless gang of smugglers form an uneasy alliance; and finally at Treblinka, a concentration camp where every day is a brutal nightmare of vanishing hope and systematic death. Gideon must bury his identity, his religion, and every emotion he possesses to simply stay alive. "Survive, Gideon." But can he?

In the begging of the book Gideon is forced to watch other Jews to dance and has to laugh at them. Three big points;he gets taken to the train station to be taken to Treblinka but escapes the train. He gets caught again and goes to Treblinka he and other Jews start to fight and they escape. A battle begins in the Warsaw ghetto. Something from me of the book; It was a good book I liked the characters, the story, and they way it was written. Overall it was a interesting book. At the ending the main character escapes the Warsaw Ghetto and Poland.It is the best book I have ever read!
