I listened to the audiobook for free through YA Sync available August 7 13, 2014 This audiobook was paired with The Shawl and although the two are quite different in outlook they are both incredibly powerful tales of survival during horrific times Ben Lesser, just a kid at the time at age 10 16 during 1939 1945, was one of the only members of his family to live through the unspeakable events of the Holocaust Not only did he just barely make it out with his life by the time of the American libera [...]

This was a 2014 selection from the SYNC YA Audiobook series I have always had a kind of fascination with survivor tales from the Holocaust, so I downloaded it Ben s story is truly amazing He had a rather prosperous childhood with a very loving family Then, like so many, his world was turned upside down by the Nazi invasion His harrowing tale was truly heartbreaking, and yet heartwarming as well He lost so much, but his attitude of knowing what had to be done, then simply doing it, was never stri [...]

Great book I am always facinated that the holocaust could have happened Just like the author, Ben Lesser, I ask the question where was the world How could such a thing have been allowed to happen How did good people sit back and do nothing Did they know As he talks about the American s coming to liberate them he comments on the shock in their faces and the fact that years later when he met some of those soldiers speaking at a conference they said that they didn t come on purpose to liberate Dach [...]

Despite our differences, we share a common humanity, and it is better for all of us to honor our shared humanity rather than to despise our differences Ben Lesser What an incredible life this man has lived, and what an incredible optimism he has maintained through the unspeakable horrors, tortures, and indignities he survived His message is so much than never forget So much I enjoyed hearing the parts Lesser narrated himself the most Actor Jonathan Silverman was very good, but the pacing was o [...]

Not as poetic as Elie Wiesel s Night, but still an amazing account of a Holocaust survivor and his drive to not only survive but thrive when he comes to America after World War II.This one is definitely written for students, so some of the explanations are a little repetitive, but the audio is really wonderful with Lesser reading the opening and closing sections and actor Jonathan Silverman reading the rest This is a thorough and well produced affair.

Lots of great life lessons are shared here, and I can t help but feel like he s addressing a YA audience, though what he shares is certainly relevant and or applicable to anyone I have read an awful lot of holocaust biographies, and each one is extremely painful, but I am glad to have their experiences recorded and accessible It is incredible what a human being can tolerate, survive, inflict, conquer, overcome, and accomplish.

This is an amazing book Ben Lesser, a Jewish man born in Poland in 1928, managed to escape the ghetto of Bochnia, Poland and fled to Hungary, that had not yet been occupied The war however would still catch up with him as Hungary was also invaded by the Nazi s The first part of the book describes mister Lessers short pre war childhood, life in Poland after the occupation, his escape to Hungary and his time in Auschwitz concentration camp This part of the book is a pretty heavy read, obviously Un [...]

I listened to the end of this book first, and then then again at the right time once I got to the end of the book So, this confused me a little bit, but, didn t really diminish the book once I figured out what happened with the mix up Of course there are many heart breaking moments in this memoir, being written by a survivor of concentration camps After Ben comes to America though, he seems to have pretty exceptional luck , except it s probably not luck it s probably that he s a very hard workin [...]

Remember.It s hard to hear stories like this, but very important The story of Ben Lesser s life, from childhood, through WWII and the Holocaust, being liberated and then reunited with his sister before moving to the U.S and then the life he made for himself as he built his own American dream, was very engaging and hard to put down.One of the other reviews on here said, This was a little hard to read in some parts It was almost too much Well, of course it was hard to read Of course it was too muc [...]

This Book was so moving and so Amazing I cannot get over how this great young man experienced every horror that the Holocaust had put forth It is so amazing how he survived at such a young age It is amazing how he thought about others during his ordeal It was heartbreaking to hear how all the other countries let this atrocity happen Now we would not let such a thing happen The fact that Ben then came to America and shined at everything he did Ben was a Jew, human being, hero, father, husband, an [...]

This book is somewhat unique in that it has three separate sections one when Lesser was a child teenager during the time of WWII, one when he was recovering after the Holocaust and where in the world he ended up, and the third for his life after that point as he started his own family and career.Although the first section is very sad, the rest of the book is much positive and upbeat as Lesser shares bits of wisdom learned from his own life experience.

What a powerful memoir The storytelling is great but often very painful This is than a survival story It is a story of strength, perseverance, and the importance of living a good life, a life that matters Ben Lesser, himself narrates the beginning and the end Jonathan Silverman narrates the rest The audio version is well done and moving This is a book not to be missed and would make a great book to use with any Holocaust unit or course.

I m obsessed with real life stories of Holocaust survivors I ve read so many, but with each one it s still difficult to believe such horrors were committed and such heroes lived on to overcome the nightmare Ben Lesser s life is an inspiration Every young person ought to read his story and learn from this exceptional human being.

This book took me through a huge range of emotion It would rip my heart out and I d shake my head in complete disbelief, then have me cheering and feeling overwhelmed with the goodness of man and God One of the many things I loved was the broad picture of how God works in our lives to bring about good even from extreme horror.

Perseverance is the one word that would describe Ben Lesser s life When all hope is loss, Ben and his family found the opportunities to survive Sadly, the Nazi were beyond evil Thank you Ben for sharing your life.

It is inspiring to me that Mr Lesser endured so much, but overcame such atrocities and hardships It is a credit to God that the human spirit can have such a will to survive and thrive.

While this is still as horrific as any tale about the Holocaust, Lesser s style is very readable, and even humorous in spots, making it a very approachable read for all ages.
