The Boy on the Wooden Box
THE BOY ON THE WOODEN BOX: HOW THE IMPOSSIBLE BECAME POSSIBLE ON SCHINDLER'S LIST by Leon Leyson with Marilyn Harran and Elizabeth Leyson. Atheneum, 2013.
Leon Leyson was one of them: one of the many saved by the generosity of Oskar Schindler. This memoir takes readers back to the time of the Holocaust, a tme when simply being Jewish could mean death. Leon and his family certainly faced extermination without the assistance of Schindler and others who put their lives at risk to save others. Leyson's first person account makes this read immediate and powerful.
