Jack had a wonderful, carefree childhood, but when he was a pre-teen, Hitler invaded his home country of Poland. Eventually Jack was sent to a concentration camp. Over the course of the war, he was shuffled around to several camps, always being forced to do hard labor and always struggling to survive. As with most Holocaust survivor stories, there were very occasional kind Nazis who helped him and there were always friends, other prisoners, helping him. Surviving Hitler is a quick read. Jack’s story is told in a very factual way and with great impact. His hope was that knowing his and other survivor stories would help us to never again allow a Holocaust to happen. I very highly recommend this book to anyone early teens and up learning about or interested in World War II.
