Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: The biography of Leon Leyson, the only memoir published by a former Schindler's List child.
"The darkest of times can unleash the worst in human nature--and also the best. Leon Leyson lived through those times. Forced from home to ghetto to concentration camps, separated from his family, he experienced things that no child should ever experience. But there was one thing that could never be torn away: his will to survive. And one man--one Nazi--showed him that hope can come in the most unexpected way."--From the Publisher.
