The Boy On The Wooden Box is a memoir written by Leon Leyson. It was published on August 27, 2013. It has a total of 256 pages.
The Boy On The Wooden Box is about a little boy named Leon and how he managed with the holocaust. Him and his family were taken by the Germans and put into camps and transferred to other locations many times during world war 2.
Though in despair with no food and little hope of surviving in awful conditions, hope arrives. A man by the name of Oskar Schindler who runs the factories that the jews work in help Leon, his family, and all the others that were recruited to work in the factories.
Working at Schindler's factories allowed Leon and his family to find food scraps and keep pushing through each day. Schindler occasionally gave some people bread. Schindler also kept many family's from being separated and killed.
Before World War 2 Leon and his family lived a normal life. They did everyday things. They eventually moved to a place known as Krakow and got transferred by train to other camps from there. Oskar Schindler saved the lives of many during that time by providing food. But was it enough to save them?
My favorite part of the book was when Leon talked about his interactions with Schindler. I rate this book 5 stars because of the suspense that builds and the deep story of his own life.
