Content descriptions

General Note: "Based on the true story by Ruth and Jack Gruener."
"While the story of Jack Gruener is true--and remarkable--this book is a work of fiction. As an author I've taken some liberties with time and events to paint a fuller and more representative picture of the Holocaust as a whole."--Afterword.
Includes a biographical afterword (pp. 257-260).
Summary, etc.: Based on the life of Jack Gruener, this book relates his story of survival from the Nazi occupation of Krakow, when he was eleven, through a succession of concentration camps, to the final liberation of Dachau.
