Product Description

This is the true story first told in The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz (a publishing phenomenon that sold an incredible 140,000 copies), rewritten in this version, for younger readers. Tragic, shocking, but ultimately uplifting, it is a hugely important book.With prose and dialogue, the book reads like the most extraordinary fiction. But using extensive research - letters, diaries and interviews - it stays as close to true events as is possible. The author was very close to the late Kurt Kleinmann (the Kurt of the book) who he talked with extensively, and this new version is written with the wholehearted blessing of the Kleinmann family.This is a total rewrite of the original, and with tone and content appropriate for the age group. The book doesn't patronise or shy away from the horrors of the Holocaust, and will be an important educational tool as well as an inspiring story. Teaching resources will be provided alongside the book's publication.Following in the footsteps of seminal works that tell the stories of this terrible time - from The Diary of a Young Girl to The Silver Sword and more recently When the Sky Falls - this is sure to be a future classic. The text will be accompanied by effective and sensitive illustrations by David Ziggy Greene.
