Noike’s journey begins when the Einsatzgruppen, a Nazi death squad, descends upon his hometown of Maciejow, Poland in 1942, and murders his family and thousands of their neighbors. Noike escapes deep into the Polish forests and assumes the identity of an orphaned Polish Catholic boy. Although Noike wore a cross and attended church, he could never fully hide his past. His only hope was to outlast the war and outwit his enemies.

Noike: A Memoir of Leon Ginsburg: One Boy's Remarkable Journey of Survival through the Holocaust

Recently I have read 4 books of holocaust survivors and, although I enjoyed all of them and would recommend them all, this book was the best of the 4. Thinking back to when I was 11 or 12, I can't imagine dealing with the things this fellow had to deal with at that age. How could people be so cruel to their fellow man.

A tremendous story describing the horrifying events of the Holocaust. The young lad whose daughter wrote the book was amazing.
