Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A gripping novel based on the astonishing true story of a boy who survived ten concentration camps. Based on the true story by Ruth and Jack Gruener. Ten concentration camps. Ten different places where you are starved, tortured, and worked mercilessly. It's something no one could imagine surviving. But it is what Yanek Gruener has to face. As a Jewish boy in 1930s Poland, Yanek is at the mercy of the Nazis who have taken over. Everything he has and everyone he loves have been snatched brutally from him. And then Yanek himself is taken prisoner--his arm tattooed with the words Prisoner B-3087. He is forced from one nightmarish concentration camp to another, as World War I rages all around him. He encounters evil he could never haver imagined, but also sees surprising glimpses of hope amid the horror. Can Yanek make it through the terror without losing his hope, his will to live--and, most of all, his sense of who he really is inside?

   Good book
Without a doubt, this book is really well-written. I enjoyed personally, but with strong pity for the Jews sent there, learning about the different concentration camps and the cruelty of the Nazis. It may be too sad for some, for some it may be too sad. For others it might be a great book. And some others may also think otherwise. I thoroughly enjoyed it for myself. It tells of the fight to survive in the different concentration camps. This book '' I really liked.

   Disappointed...
I am a real person who loves to read authentic accounts. I don 't like to read fiction because anyone can come up with a story. Someone recommended this book in the comment section of the film The Hiding Place, which was posted on YouTube. I bought it on Amazon and came back to the digital version. I later decided to find out more about the author and that is when I discovered that the book is not a personal account of a single person's journey during the Holocaust.

   The Horrible Holocaust Never To Be Forgotten
I read this book because my 12-year-old grandson read it. He is a very sensitive boy and I have a very close relationship with him. As a 76 year old Jewish man, I feel beaten by Yad Vashem, by numerous films, museums, the Showa Foundation et al. Am I grateful for the countless telling of the story? A resounding YES!! Am I troubled by its presentation in this book to be directed at middle schoolers?? The response is also YES. 5 stars for an older audience are needed for an older audience. How can anyone read this without the raw emotion that has battered their soul?

   My 12 yr old son DEVOURS this series of books!
I don 't know about you, but when I want to try a series of books for my son, I buy first one or the only before buying the set, so I started him on Refugee from a school library fundraiser. Long story short, he LOVES it... long story short, he devours seriously these books! Makes them go to school for free time, no back talk to get into bed a little earlier for reading time, begging for just 5 minutes at bedtime seriously, I just wish there was more to make the mom or dad job so much easier! So my question would be if your son or daughter loved this series too - where do I go next? Open to suggestions as there is only one left in this series he is about to begin the Code of Honor... help! -) ( )

   Favorite book
I love history and World War 2 so that this book was great for the way it told before the concentration camp and i think he perfectly desribed the horrors of the holocaust. Love that this is true. Would recommend to people who love history and world war 2. Would recommend to people who love war 2. 1010 1010 is a 1010/1010

   One of my favorite books ever
About this incredible YA novel to make you buy it immediately? It is a real novel based on a fantastic person who lived by being transported to 10 concentration camps. If you have any interest in WWII, you must read this book if you have any interest in reading it. I had never read anything by Alan Gratz before, but after reading this, I have read some of his other books, which are very good and worth reading, but this novel is nothing short of extraordinary.

   So moving!
While somewhat fictional, a very emotional book to read. It makes you see how much a person can survive and still become the person they were meant to be.

As a child she survived the Krakow ghetto before the camp, before the camp. This young man, Corageous, survived the war and emigrated to the United States.
