The Boy on the Wooden Box
By: Leon Leyson
Lexile Level: 1000L
If you like reading about real life heroes this book is for you. In his autobiography, Leon Leyson, tells the story of how he was able to survive the Holocaust, but only because he had the help of Oskar Schindler. He describes his life in the ghetto and how he saw loved ones torn away. Leyson explains how Schindler, a Nazi factory owner, endangered his own life, so that he could save the lives of over 1,200 Jewish people during WWII. This non-fiction book reads like a novel, and gives you a first-hand perspective on the Holocaust and life after the WWII.
