Stephen Nasser somehow dug deep within his soul to survive the brutal and inhumane treatment his captors inflicted on the Jews. He was the only one of his family to survive--but the memory of his brother's dying words compelled him to live. Stephen's account of the Holocaust, told in the refreshingly direct and optimistic language of a young boy, appeals to both younger audiences and his contemporaries. Written in a straightforward, narrative style, Nasser avoids the cloying or maudlin language that characterizes some stories of the Holocaust. Perhaps it's for that reason readers will find his book one they won't forget--and one they recommend to others as a "must read."

Heart wrenching and hopeful
It is unimaginable living through the horrors described in this book. I had to put it down at times to process what the author had endured...to grieve for those he lost and loved. I was also greatly moved by the young man's spirit...the hope he had. The drive to still see good and beauty in the world. I learned so much from this man's story about the power of the human spirit. I'm grateful for having read this book.
