Determined, a Memoir: One Boy’s Holocaust Survival Story
This is a memoir about overcoming loss and suffering during the war and how a young boy’s undying spirit, and a series of miracles, helped him survive.
After the Nazis invaded his shtetl in World War II, young Martin Baranek went on to survive the ghetto, a labor camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the death march and Mauthausen.
Martin escaped the train headed for Treblinka, where most of his family perished, and was twice sent to the quarantine barracks in Birkenau to be sent to the gas chambers. Twice he escaped with only moments to spare. Come meet this incredible man, together with Lisa Cicero, who had the privilege of putting his memories to paper to ensure we never forget.
