Leo Bretholz's Holocaust memoir chronicles his harrowing night aboard and dramatic escape from a freight train bound for Auschwitz in 1942, as well as other escapes that kept Leo one step ahead of the Nazis' "final solution." This is a sweeping, riveting memoir of one Jew's struggle for survival.

The few who broke free were fortunate to escape even once from the Nazis, but Leo Bretholz escaped seven times-including a jump from a train bound for Auschwitz-during his seven-year ordeal across war-torn
Europe. Hailed by Library Journal as "riveting . . . a fascinating and moving piece of history," Leap into Darkness is an inspiring memoir of one Jewish boy's irrepressible will to survive.
