“Think of it as a game, Jack…Play the game right and you might outlast the Nazis.”

Caught up in Hitler’s Final Solution to annihilate Europe’s Jews, fifteen-year-old Jack Mandelbaum is torn from his family and thrown into the nightmarish world of the concentration camps. Here, simple existence is a constant struggle, and Jack must learn to live hour to hour, day to day. Despite intolerable conditions, he resolves not to hate his captors and vows to see his family again. But even with his strong will to survive, how long can Jack continue to play this life-and-death game?

Award-winning author Andrea Warren has crafted an unforgettable true story of a boy becoming a man in the shadow of the Third Reich.

    " Haunting. That's the only word I can use to describe this book. It was hauntingly beautiful not in that the Holocaust was beautiful, but that his story was. "

    " I was one of ten students in my school selected to have the honor of meeting Jack Mendelbaum, who is the boy profiled in the book. It is a candid autobiography and brings the tragedy of the Holocaust into focus. "

    " I had to read this one over the past summer for school also, and I didn't even bother reading it! I read maybe about 10 pages throughout the book, and I hated it. My school picks the suckiest books ever for us to read. I skimmed it enough to write a report, but when we were tested on it, I didn't know any of the answers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maxx Lamb | 1/15/2014

    " This book was amazing. Truly. It inspired awe. The whole book is flawlessly written with loud and powerful voice. It hits pretty close to home. This is a book that shows the cruelty and evil of the deathcamps in a truly flawless way. It shows his strife throughout the Holocaust. And because he lived, he founded the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education in honor of people lost. This is as excellent a Holocaust themed book as Schindler's List is a Holocaust themed movie. "

    " A young adult book, so language was simple. Story chronological, so easy to follow. Will meet the subject of the book, Jack Mandelbaum, at our November 2012 bookclub, so that will bring it to life. I learned quite a bit I did not know about some of the horrors in the work camps. "
