Prisoner B-3087 by Alan GratzSurvive. At any cost.
10 concentration camps.
10 different places where you are starved, tortured, and worked mercilessly.
Its something no one could imagine surviving.
But it is what Yanek Gruener has to face.
As a Jewish boy in 1930s Poland, Yanek is at the mercy of the Nazis who have taken over. Everything he has, and everyone he loves, have been snatched brutally from him. And then Yanek himself is taken prisoner -- his arm tattooed with the words PRISONER B-3087.
He is forced from one nightmarish concentration camp to another, as World War II rages all around him. He encounters evil he could have never imagined, but also sees surprising glimpses of hope amid the horror. He just barely escapes death, only to confront it again seconds later.
Can Yanek make it through the terror without losing his hope, his will -- and, most of all, his sense of who he really is inside?
Based on an astonishing true story.

A gripping story of how one boy survived the Holocaust. Beginning with his home in Krakow that was turned into a Polish ghetto he was moved through ten different camps. As far as he knows, all the rest of his family have been killed and he is the last remaining Greuner to carry on his family name. His resolve to live without giving up his humanity is amazing. As Yanek, now called Jack, Greuner said no one can understand if you did not live through it, but this book enlightens. A must read for anyone wanting to know more about WWII.
