An inspiring true story of hope and survival, this is the testimony of a boy who was imprisoned in Auschwitz, Gross-Rosen, and Buchenwald and recorded his experiences through words and color drawings.
In June 1943, after long years of hardship and persecution, 13-year-old Thomas Geve and his mother were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Separated upon arrival, he was left to fend for himself in the men’s camp of Auschwitz I.
During 22 harsh months in three camps, Thomas experienced and witnessed the cruel and inhumane world of Nazi concentration and death camps. Nonetheless, he never gave up the will to live. Miraculously, he survived and was liberated from Buchenwald at the age of 15.
While still in the camp and too weak to leave, Thomas felt a compelling need to document it all and drew more than 80 drawings, all portrayed in simple yet poignant detail with extraordinary accuracy. He not only shared the infamous scenes, but also the day-to-day events of life in the camps, alongside inmates' manifestations of humanity, support, and friendship.
To honor his lost friends and the millions of silenced victims of the Holocaust, in the years following the war, Thomas put his story into words. Despite the evil of the camps, his account provides a striking affirmation of life.
The Boy Who Drew Auschwitz is the unique testimony of young Thomas and his quest for a brighter tomorrow.

A true story told by a young boy, without adult prejudice. Powerfully shows the strength and weaknesses of the human mind, body and soul. The events of this story should NEVER happen again.

Tragic, yet hopeful
I learned a lot of new things from this book. There is something special about a young person's perspective to this tragic historic event. It's tragic, yet hopeful.
