Summary
Tells the story of a boy who at the age of twelve lost everything: hope, family, and even his own identity. As Nazi persecutions grew in intensity, young Felix's father went to England to obtain travel papers to allow the family to emigrate from Czechoslovakia. But they never made it out of Prague. Felix spent the next three years in a series of concentration camps- Terezin, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Blechhammer, Gross-Rosen and Buchenwald-and survived the Death March from Blechhammer in 1945.
