i so freakin love this book. but there were sad parts. like when jack gruener's parents died, along with his family. then he meets another guy in the amp, and he dies. then there's his uncle who died before he could get to the stash of money he found in a coat pocket. a LOT of people died. when i say alot, i don't mean a couple hundred. i mean like, THOUSANDS of people died. i would not read this book if you have emotion problems

Amazing book for its size read it eight times

This was a really good book if you want a rough idea of what the poles, jews and gypsies went through.This was a truly amazing sorry cause this pour boy went to not one or two concentration camps but 10 of them and he survived all of them even though none of his family did.This boy almost gave up cause when he saw his uncle at one of his concentration camps he told never to give up and that he can't tell anybody any personal information and that advice kept him alive.This was an amazing book and I totally recommend it.

I've read a few books about Jews and the camps they endured. This book is easy reading, large print and can be read quickly. Its another powerful book in what one boy endured, so horrible. I can't even imagine.

Best book I have ever read. Read the book 8 times and never get bored.

This is based on the true story of a boy who survived not only the ghetto, but 10 different concentration camps. Even though it doesn't get into a lot of gory detail it's still hard to take. This really happened, people. It's especially important to read books like this - as the eyewitnesses of the Holocaust grow old and pass away, it could become easy to forget what they suffered. In today's political climate, we have to remember the end result of hate and bigotry last century was the loss of 8 million innocent people.

This is a great book that is good for younger people who want to get a rough idea of what the Gypsies, Jews, and Poles suffered through. It doesn't go into a lot of gruesome detail about things that go on in the camps, which makes this ideal for the younger reader. It is still difficult to read and made me cry, but the things that go on in this book don't quite describe ALL of the horrors that people suffered through in the concentration camps.

Used this book for a World War 2 history project. Ended up with an A on the project, and the book is a great read. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Holocaust, World War 2, or someone just looking for a good read.
