Product Description

The stench of decay pierced the air aboard the boxcar of trapped Jews. "Why me?" fifteen-year-old Max asked himself, as a convoy rumbled from the Warsaw Ghetto to Majdanek death camp in May 1943.

The Nazis had destroyed the Glauben family's business, upended their rights, and ultimately decimated their neighborhood. The deluge of questions would only intensify after the Nazis murdered Max's mother, father, and brother. Max channeled grit and determination to outlast six horrific concentration camps in his quest to survive.

This memoir explores Max's mischievous childhood and teen years as a go-to ghetto smuggler. Max journeys from displaced person to American immigrant and Korean veteran. He reveals how he ached as he dared to court love and rear children. For decades, he bottled up his trauma. Then he realized: He could transform his pain into purpose.

Infused with raw emotion and vivid detail, historical records and Max's poignant voice, this memoir relays the true story of the dehumanization Max endured. It also relays Max's powerful lifetime commitment to actively thwarting hate and galvanizing resilience. Max insists you, too, can transform your adversity into your greatest strength.
