The boy on the wooden box by Leon Leyson

The boy on the wooden box by Leon LeysonThere was so much from this true story that made me reflect not only on our ability to survive horrific physical and emotional trauma but on how life is possibly meant to go on after. The most powerful statement for me from this book was ‘One day I might feel safe again’ – Leon wrote this almost 60 years after the holocaust and passed away before his book was published. Although written specifically for younger readers, this book is a must read for adults too as it will expand on what you have learned from Schindler’s List.
