Whatever it takes to survive…
Gideon has to survive. He must struggle to stay alive, no matter the cost. And the cost is brutal and terrible for a Jewish boy in Poland’s Warsaw Ghetto during World War II, and then in the concentration camp of Treblinka.
He joins a gang of thieves to smuggle food and supplies past the Nazi guards into the ghetto. Not for a moment dare he stop looking over his shoulder, because it is instant death or deportation for a Jew to be caught outside the ghetto walls. He must bury his religion, his identity, his entire sense of self. To survive, he cannot think – he can only act.
This is the story of Gideon’s fight for freedom and for the strength to remember what no one must ever forget.
