In his memoir, Leon Leyson describes how he survived the Holocaust as a boy with the help of German businessman Oskar Schindler. Shortly before Leon’s 10th birthday, Nazi Germany invaded Poland. Young Leon experienced German authorities discriminating against and terrorizing Jews in Kraków, eventually forcing his family to move into a ghetto. Leon and his family struggled to survive and ultimately began to work for Oskar Schindler, who employed Jews in his factory and saved their lives. Leon’s account provides students with an accurate description of the complex range of behaviors during the Holocaust and the horrors he experienced without being too graphic for younger readers.
