In his moving account of how a young boy managed to survive the horrors of the Holocaust, Joseph Spring takes us through his turbulent life as he fled Germany to Belgium, hid in France on false papers, tried to cross the border into Spain and was then betrayed crossing the Swiss border and handed over to the Germans.
With his life constantly threatened by hunger, disease or a bullet in Auschwitz, Joseph trained to be a welder and lived from one day to the next until on his eighteenth birthday he was forced to go on a death march. Using precise details and a clear direct voice, Joseph conveys his experiences vividly and records for posterity the clear facts of this shameful time in Europe’s history.
