  • "Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) was only ten years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and his family was forced to relocate to the Krakow ghetto. With incredible luck, perseverance and grit, Leyson was able to survive the sadism of the Nazis, including that of the demonic Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the concentration camp outside Krakow. Ultimately, it was the generosity and cunning of one man, a man named Oskar Schindler, who saved Leon Leyson's life, and the lives of his mother, his father, and two of his four siblings, by adding their names to his list of workers in his factory - a list that became world renowned: Schindler's List. This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler's List child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Most notable is the lack of rancour, the lack of venom, and the abundance of dignity in Mr Leyson's telling. The Boy on the Wooden Box is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you've ever read."
  • ""The darkest of times can unleash the worst in human nature--and also the best. Leon Leyson lived through those times. Forced from home to ghetto to concentration camps, separated from his family, he experienced things that no child should ever experience. But there was one thing that could never be torn away: his will to survive. And one man--one Nazi--showed him that hope can come in the most unexpected way."--From the Publisher."

  • "Prawdziwa historia chłopca cudem ocalałego z Holocaustu.Nawet w najbardziej mrocznych czasach-- a może zwłaszcza wtedy-- jest miejsce dla siły woli i odwagi.Leon Leyson (właśc. Lejb Lejzon) miał tylko dziesięć lat, gdy naziści najechali na Polskę, i musiał wraz z rodziną przenieść się do krakowskiego getta. Dzięki nieprawdopodobnemu szczęściu, a także hartowi ducha i sprytowi, udało mu się przetrwać sadystyczne praktyki nazistów, w tym demonicznego Amona Goetha, komendanta obozu koncentracyjnego w podkrakowskim Płaszowie. Jednak w ostatecznym rachunku to wspaniałomyślność i przebiegłość jednego człowieka-- Oskara Schindlera-- uratowała życie Leona Leysona i jego rodziny. Schindler wpisał ich na listę pracowników swojej fabryki-- lista ta stała się znana na świecie jako "lista Schindlera".Książka wspaniale oddaje niewinność młodego chłopca, który musiał przejść przez piekło. Najbardziej uderza w niej brak słów pełnych nienawiści; wiele za to mówi o ludzkiej godności i woli przetrwania."
