Prisoner B-3087

CRITICS HAVE SAID

While some liberties have been taken, with the permission of Gruener and his wife, Ruth, also a survivor, the experiences and images come directly from the Grueners’ collective memories of the war. An author’s note provides further biographical information. A powerful story, well told.
School Library Journal

His remarkable survival story begins with a dramatic, emotional punch and then chronicles such moments as his secretive bar mitzvah in a warehouse basement, the systematic round up of Jews, and his deportation to the Plaszow concentration camp, the first of 10 camps he would suffer but survive.
