In this dreadful place where there was nothing to own and nothing to give, the magician had given Werner a gift. It wasn’t like a book or a new jacket, things that he had received in the past. It was more special. Magic had helped keep me alive here., Herr Levin continued. Perhaps it will help you as well.
A captivating account of a boy and a magician that met in Auschwitz. A place where there was no hope but was found in the friendship between the two. It is a haunting account of the evil of man and the strength of those who fight to survive.
I was very impressed with the pictures and dialogue. It would be a great resource for parents and their children to discuss history and the fight of human dignity. I loved that their were actual pictures of Werner the little boy and what happened to him after the war was over.
A Special Thank You to Second Story Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
