Format: Hardcover
It has been many years since I last read this book. I first read it when I was 14 years old and I still remember much of the story. I got the book as a gift from my grandmother who then on my advice read and loved the book as well. This book is good for all ages. This true story tops many best selling novels. The book is written so well that the reader is drawn into the story feeling that he is there with Chaim facing the same dangers. From an educational perspective many geographical and historical lessons are built into the book. May Chaim's memory and story be a blessing for us all.

Format: Hardcover
Chaim Shapiro tells the incredible story of his escape from first Nazi then Communist occupied Poland. He manages to get into and out of all types of situations, while keeping us laughing with his view of ww2 era Soviet Union.As a sixteen year old Jew, he inspires us with his loyalty in spirit and practice to his religion. Being an avid reader of ww2 era- writings, I have to say that this tops the list.I'm just surprised that this isn't a best seller!

This book inspired me. It showed how the hand of G-d is present throughout our lives. It also showed the author's courage and determination to do the right thing and to be kind. May Reb Chaim Shapiro's memory be blessed.

Format: Hardcover
Chaim Shapiro's inspiring book is a lasting legacy and wonderful memorial to the author, who unfortunately passed away this autumn, and the European Jewish communities of WWII. Courage and faith combine in this highly recommended, true adventure story of great historical importance.

Format: Hardcover
Awesome book! A must read! Very educational and at the same time its also a book you can't put down until you are done. This should make a great movie one day. The story is about a young jewish boys travels through Russia and Germany during WW2. It shows how he had to escape from numerous situations that normally would have been fatal to a real military man. In the mean time he is only a teenager. Don't start this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one reading!

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Petr Hausner on October 23, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is the best book I read in years. The odyssey of a Jewish youngster during WWII from Poland through Lithuania, European and Asian Russia, Poland, Germany to America is a heartwarming thriller/biography. Mr. Shapiro exposes through his inquisitive and intelligent mind and through his loving heart multiple cultures of the former Soviet Union. Cultures that carried the incredible burden of war superimposed on the burden of an incapable and profoundly wrong communist administration. The writer averts innumerable dangers through his wit, understanding of humanity, and his deep spirituality. Hatred driven by prejudice sparked the so far biggest catastrophe of mankind. Here humanity overcomes prejudice and ultimately wins.
