"Like the late author Jerzy Kosinski's young hero in The Painted Bird, Leon is one who instinctively made the right split-second decisions that saved his life, not just once but numerous times."

"Orphaned by 1942, Leon Ginsburg spent several silent, hungry years in Poland as a little boy on the run. His indomitable spirit enabled him to make several split-second decisions that literally saved his life. Today he is a happily married man and grandfather."

"Ginsburg eluded almost certain death multiple times over the course of many close-call years. 'That's what makes his story unique--that he was so very young and so very resourceful,' says Dr. Rosanna Gatens of Florida Atlantic University."
-- The Palm Beach Post
"Young Leon Ginsburg sat hiding in a boarded-up wall as, a few feet away, Ukrainian police bayoneted and dragged away his mother, who was hiding under bedding. Later, while out looking for food, Ginsburg escaped from a suspicious teenager by sticking his hand into his shirt and pretending he had a gun."
