Leon Greenman was born in Britain, in London's East End. The beginning of Leon's wartime experiences is set against the background of 1930s Rotterdam and occupied Holland, and this moving and sensitive account highlights his desperate plight to prove his and his young family's British identity, chronicling the tragic events leading up to Leon and his wife Esther and son Barney being deported to Auschwitz Birkenau. Leon writes movingly of his life as a slave labourer and prisoner in five different concentration camps and of his struggle to survive.
