Surviving Hitler

Surviving Hitler

by Andrea Warren (Author)


In 1942 fifteen-year-old Jack Mandelbaum was torn from his family in Poland and sent to a Nazi concentration camp. This is Jack's own true story of how he fought against starvation, disease and the insane brutality of the Holocaust. Jack is sent to a series of different camps, each one as horrific as the other. He soon befriends Moniek, another prisoner, and together they learn to fight through adversity and are finally able to walk free on the day of liberation. This is a personal and touching tale of Jack's World War II experiences, as told by Jack himself to award-winning author Andrea Warren. The book includes a 4-page photo section, including a photo taken of Jack shortly after liberation.
