Prisoner B-3087

prisonerb3087Written by Alan Gratz

Based on true story by Ruth and Jack Gruener

As expressed by a School Library Journal Review, this is a “powerful” story of a prisoner of the Nazis during World War II. Yanek Gruener experiences the Warsaw Ghetto, transportation and internment in 10 different concentration camps, including the march between the last 2. He lost his family, watched others die all around him, and experienced evil beyond belief. A compelling read to remind us of the evils of the Holocaust. It is based mostly on the actual events in the life of survivor Jack Gruener.
