19 posts | 31 read | 8 to read
Survive. At any cost. 10 concentration camps. 10 different places where you are starved, tortured, and worked mercilessly. It's something no one could imagine surviving. But it is what Yanek Gruener has to face. As a Jewish boy in 1930s Poland, Yanek is at the mercy of the Nazis who have taken over. Everything he has, and everyone he loves, have been snatched brutally from him. And then Yanek himself is taken prisoner -- his arm tattooed with the words PRISONER B-3087. He is forced from one nightmarish concentration camp to another, as World War II rages all around him. He encounters evil he could have never imagined, but also sees surprising glimpses of hope amid the horror. He just barely escapes death, only to confront it again seconds later. Can Yanek make it through the terror without losing his hope, his will -- and, most of all, his sense of who he really is inside? Based on an astonishing true story.

Just went on the best kind of neighborhood walk, the one where you arrive 🏡 with a stack of 📚!

Bottom stack from our nearby Free Little Library. Then we ran into a friend who has 3 boys a few years older than Maya, and invited her in to borrow some more books off their shelves! Our closest library is still closed for renovations, so a lot of book trading will be happening in our neighborhood this summer!

4thhouseontheleft @lover.of.the.classics Not yet, but we plan on reading that one together because of the mature content. She's been on a big Holocaust historical fiction kick this year. Even more so after she learned details about the concentration camp experiences on my husband's side of the family. 9mo

At the bookstore, my daughter will usually show me books, I'll ask if she wants them, but she says no because she has so much school work and no time to read. Yesterday, however, she brought this to me. I asked if she wanted it, expecting a no. And she said, "yes please!" She used to be such a bookworm, so I felt that "connection" again as I happily paid for this book for her.

I can't decide whether I'm a chatty introvert or quiet extrovert, but there's something about conferences that really takes it out of me. Settling in with a glass of wine and ready to relax for a couple hours before hitting the hay in my lovely quietnoisy city apartment.

I won a signed copy of Prisoner B-3087 tonight! I've been eyeing it for a while, and after hearing Gratz talk about it this evening, I'm even more intrigued.

As you read this story, you travel along with teenage Yanek to ten different concentration camps during World War II. TEN. This is unfortunately based on a very true story. As a result, your heart is wrenched and your mind has a hard time comprehending the horrors that so many people have experienced. I visited Dachau concentration camp not too long ago, and this book brought those emotions that I felt in that quiet, dark place right back.
