Book Club
Wednesday  |  March 27th  |  11:30 am  |  Chapel
 
For March we will be reading The Boy on the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson: 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 – 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 rancor, 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. Please join us in Flippen Chapel with a sack lunch and participate in an interesting book discussion.
