The last boy in Auschwitz : a WW2 Jewish Holocaust survival true story / Moshe (Mjetek) Bomberg ; [translated from the Hebrew: Zoe Jordan.].


He will stay in Auschwitz to the bitter end if it means his brother might survive. Poland, 1940. Moshe and his family flee their hometown of Warsaw in a desperate bid for survival as Nazi forces advance on the city. Hiding under false identities, they hope to wait out the end of the war, which must surely be near. But nowhere is truly safe for Poland's Jews, and soon Moshe and his brother find themselves en route to Auschwitz, from where no one returns. Separated from the rest of their family, they hold on to each other with everything they have. But a devastating accident leads the brothers to confront an impossible choice - stay together and perish in Auschwitz, or part ways for the smallest chance to survive. As the war draws to a close, Moshe is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his brother safe, even if it means remaining behind, alone, in the one place he is most desperate to leave. In an unbelievable true story, Moshe and his brother face hunger, hatred, and one heartbreaking goodbye in the hopes of living to see the skies beyond the walls of Auschwitz once more.
