Leon Leyson - The Boy on the Wooden Box
Leon Leyson was one of the youngest members on Oscar Schindler’s list, and in his memoir, The Boy on the Wooden Box: How the impossible became possible… on Schindler’s list, published posthumously, he tells his brave and harrowing tale of surviving the German invasion, living in Poland’s Jewish ghettos, his family’s time in the concentration camps, and how one man showed compassion and humility by saving he and some of his family members. Katie Britton spoke with Leon Leyson’s son, Daniel Leyson, about his father’s memoir, and how his father’s history wasn’t something they spoke about while growing up.
The Boy on the Wooden Box: How the impossible became possible… on Schindler’s list is co-written with Leon's daughter Marilyn Harran & wife Elisabeth Leyson.
