"My memories do not allow me to abandon my past, even though I have repressed them for more than half a century. A happy early childhood was transformed into a horrific period, and within a few years, I became a part of what history now calls the Holocaust. Surviving this dark era makes it possible for me to appreciate any joy or success life brings, no matter how infinitesimal or fleeting. Luck was on my side, but peace of mind continues to elude me. For those interested in knowing about the events and hardships that befell the Jews and me on the Eastern Front during World War II, this is my story...."
So begins this gripping memoir of a boy coming of age on the run as Nazi killing squads swept the Polish countryside, seeking and slaughtering Jews, initially killing his father and eventually murdering his sister, grandmother and many relatives. Lewis Reznik and his family faced wrenching horrors and challenges, first in a ghetto created by the Germans and then living off the land for nearly two years after fleeing to the surrounding forests with others who escaped death. A Boy's Holocaustis an inspiring tale of survival, resilience, faith, and the power of family bonds to hold firm even in the face of the most unimaginable evil.
