This unique childhood memoir of the Holocaust has been praised as "powerful" (Cincinnati Enquirer), "touching" (Jewish Digest), and "heartbreaking" (Library Journal). A true story of rare beauty and remarkable power, it has become an enduring classic.

One day, when Jacob Kuperblum was eight, he came home to his town in Poland. His family and friends were gone, rounded up by the Germans only hours earlier. He would never see them again.

Thus begins a journey of survival as a young boy travels from town to town in a desperate search for safety and shelter, growing up in fear, deprived of his home and his people -- and even his identity. All that survived was his spirit -- and his indomitable will to live. Child of the Holocaust is the acclaimed account of Jacob Kuperblum -- an unforgettable and moving tale of adversity and triumph.
