One Boy’s Holocaust Survival Story.
A memoir about overcoming loss and suffering at the hands of the Nazis, and how a young boy’s undying spirit and a series of miracles helped him survive.
After the Nazis invaded his shtetl in World War II, young Martin Baranek went on to survive the ghetto, a labor camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the death march, and Mauthausen. With his undying spirit—and a series of miracles—Martin escaped the train headed for Treblinka, where the majority of his family perished, and was twice sent to the quarantine barracks in Birkenau to be sent to the gas chambers. Twice he escaped with only moments to spare.
