Summary In this engaging, inspiring, and educational Holocaust survivor memoir, Ben Lesser invites listeners to revisit a time in history when the world went mad. Learn how this ordinary, young Jewish teenager from Krakow, Poland, survived through extraordinary times living in ghettos, enduring four concentrations camps -- including Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Dachau -- two death marches, and two death trains. After liberation from Dachau, the Holocaust survivor slowly healed, eventually recovering physically from his near-death experience. At age 18 - penniless, uneducated, and unable to speak English - he made his way to the USA and succeeded in living the American Dream.
