 Meet Jeffrey Gingold, second-generation Holocaust survivor and author of Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boy. Based upon the hidden and illuminating video and audio recordings of interviews with the author's father and grandmother, Jeffrey Gingold relates the true and tormenting story of a 7-year-old boy during the Holocaust. When Germany occupied Poland in 1939, he and his family were confined to the Warsaw Ghetto, along with 400,000 other Jews. Young Sam Gingold helps his family survive by smuggling food and medicines, and as the war continues, is forced to labor under Nazi rule in the walled city within a city. After a harrowing underground escape, the family is pursued by the Gestapo across the Polish countryside. A compelling, poignant story of courage, resilience, and determination. For the Gingold family, "survivor" is a living word. Books for sale and signing.
