A Lucky Child

Excellent reading. Amazing story of the incredible evil witnessed by a child during the Holocaust.

Great Read

I enjoyed reading about this family's struggle to survive Nazi Germany. I doubt that I would have survived. However, this young boy, Lucky Child, and his mother survived against all odds.

Very compelling

Wonderful book!! You relive his whole life story as if you are by his side right there and then! Whoever told the author people don't want to read about the Holocaust, it's almost all I read! We must never forget!
