The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz By Jeremy Dronfield (Paperback) 

Where there is family, there is hope...

Vienna, 1939.

Nazi police seize Gustav Kleinmann, a Jewish upholsterer and his son, Fritz, and send the pair to Buchenwald in Germany. There began an unimaginable ordeal that saw the pair beaten, starved and forced to build the very concentration camp they were held in.

When Gustav was set to be transferred to Auschwitz, a certain death sentence, his son refused to leave his side. Throughout the horrors they witnessed and the suffering they endured, there was one constant that kept them alive: the love between father and son.

Based on Gustav's secret diary and meticulous archive research, this book tells their incredible story for the first time - a story of courage and survival unparalleled in the history of the Holocaust.

The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz is a reminder of both the best and the worst of humanity, the strength of family ties, and the power of the human spirit.

'
A powerful and often uncomfortable true story that deserves to be read and remembered. It beautifully captures the strength of the bond between a father and son' - Heather Morris, author of New York Times no. 1 bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz
___________

'Everyone thinks, tomorrow it will be my turn. Daily, hourly, death is before our eyes . . .'

Gustav and Fritz Kleinmann are father and son in an ordinary Austrian Jewish family when the Nazis come for them.

Sent to Buchenwald concentration camp in 1939 they survive three years of murderous brutality.

Then Gustav is ordered to Auschwitz.

Fritz, desperate not to lose his beloved father, insists he must go too. And though he is told it means certain death, he won't back down.

So it is that father and son together board a train bound for the most hellish place on Earth . . .

This is the astonishing true story of horror, love and impossible survival.
