The Boy on the Wooden Box

I knew him for 48 years. I'd heard him speak before. I thought I had a tiny idea of what he had been through. I didn't. Not even close. Everyone should read this book, not only as a caution of what horrors man is capable of,  but also a reminder of how extraordinary a man--or boy--can be.  

Leon lived to be an extraordinary man because he was an extraordinary boy. 

Exhibit A: 

There was no way to "even the score" with the Nazis, no matter what I did. All I wanted  was to  remember those hours forever, remember the sight of the once proud soldiers straggling past us in abject defeat.
