this story really inspired me to think about how hard of a time it was. Daniel was so brave in his attempt for freedom, it opened a new window for me to look into history and most importantly, it showed me how lucky were are that we are free. so to Carol Matas, i say thank you. thank you for showing us the truth.

A young Jewish boy recalls life in Hitler's Germany. First his family is forced out of their home in Frankfurt and sent on a long journey to the Lodz ghetto in Poland, and then to Auschwitz--the Nazi death camp. Although Daniel is a fictitious character, his story was inspired by the real experiences of many of the more than one million children who died in the Holocaust. This book was written in conjunction with an exhibit called "Daniel's Story: Remember the Children" at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
