Very interesting and moving read.

I liked the writing style; clear and simple. According to Amazon, this book is intended for ages 9-14 and it's good that its clarity of writing makes this material accessible to younger readers.

Mr. Leyson, who sadly passed away right around the time the book was published, seems like a lovely person. He went through so much but writes without bitterness or rancor. He was, I imagine, a glass-half-full type. This undoubtedly helped him survive until he could be finally rescued by Oskar Schindler.

It still amazes me what Schindler was able to accomplish under the circumstances. He certainly was no angel himself, but knew how to push the boundaries of correctness to accomplish his goals.

Writing a review in the early morning before the coffee has kicked in is difficult, so I will stop. ;-) I highly recommend this lovely book!

Thank you, the book has just arrived here. Don't worry about the delay, it's not like my TBR pile is too small ;) Looks like this one won't stay on the pile for too long, though :)
