Much like The Boy In the Striped Pajamas or The Book Thief, this remarkable memoir from Leon Leyson, one of the youngest children to survive the Holocaust on Oskar Schindlers list, brings to readers a story of bravery and the fight for a chance to live (VOYA).

This, the only memoir published by a former Schindlers list child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) was only ten years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and his family was forced to relocate to the Krakow ghetto. With incredible luck, perseverance, and grit, Leyson was able to survive the sadism of the Nazis, including that of the demonic Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the concentration camp outside Krakow.

Ultimately, it was the generosity and cunning of one man, Oskar Schindler, who saved Leon Leysons life, and the lives of his mother, his father, and two of his four siblings, by adding their names to his list of workers in his factorya list that became world renowned: Schindlers list.

Told with an abundance of dignity and a remarkable lack of rancor and venom, The Boy on the Wooden Box is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything youve ever read.
