Summary
"Thomas Buergenthal was not quite six years old when he and his parents were forced into a Jewish ghetto in Poland. Four years later, they were placed on a train bound for Auschwitz, where Thomas was separated from his family. Alone, ten-year-old Thomas managed by his wits and some remarkable strokes of luck to survuvwe Auschwitz and the infamous death march. Filled with the stirring and true insights of a child, this acclaimed memoir conveys the sheer force of will and determination that even the youngest victims of the Holocaust evinced. From teaching himself to ride a bike belonging to an SS officer to sneaking a heavenly sip of milk, Buergenthal demonstrates that beauty can abide in the face of the greatest adversity. A lucky child is a compelling reminder of the power of grace and the resilience of the human spirit."--p. [4] of cover
