Winner Blurb: 

Run, Boy, Run is the extraordinary account of one boy's survival of the Holocaust. At the age of eight, Srulik is left alone in the Warsaw Ghetto, and must fend for himself, even forgetting his name, in order to survive the Holocaust.  With dangers all around him, he must fight off starvation, the danger of capture, brutal Polish winters and the ever-present anti-Semitism. He escapes into the countryside where he spends the ensuing years hiding in the forest, dependent on the sympathies and generosity of the poor farmers in the surrounding area. Despite the seemingly insurmountable odds, several chases, captures, attempted executions, and even the loss of his arm, Srulik miraculously survives.
