Overview
-

Renzo's story is a neglected fragment of the Holocaust. Evading the horrors of death camps and gas chambers, he tells of the Jews' everyday scramble for survival in Nazi-occupied Italy. It is the story of a young boy on the run, gradually acclimating to an unthinkable reality. But the story is not without glimpses of hope and joy. In rural Italy a communal meal provides a lesson in humanity he never forgets; the bravery and sacrifices of family, friends, and strangers affect him in profound ways. Told with spontaneity and charming honesty, this is a vivid memoir that offers a different perspective on the Jewish plight, showing us just how perceptive naive eyes can be.
