Description

From frozen tundras to veritable battlefields, a young yeshivah student escapes certain death in this spine-tingling yet eminently upbeat story of survival, faith, and ingenuity. This is the true story of Chaim Shapiro's adventure-filed odyssey through both war-torn Europe and Asiatic Russia. The author describes his many dramatic, and sometimes humorous encounters, as he flees from the Nazis, in a vivid and engrossing personal memoir.

    Read about the triumph of good over evil, and the hand of Hashem that allowed survival. How corrupt were the evil Nazi and communist governments- how they created chaos and robbed innocents of their freedoms and their lives. How noble is the Jewish faith that could motivate and sustain a young victim against the challenges of the holocaust and the war. How fortunate are we to live as we do today? These lessons are learned from Shapiro's narrative, while the writing is extremely stimulating and engrossing.

    I bought this book when I was in Israel. A Rosh Yeshiva I'm friends with told me "you have to buy this." It sat on my bookshelf for years until I started reading it one day. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. It is so good. It is well written, entertaining, insightful, and exciting.

    I never expected to read something so good. It taught me many practical life and Jewish philosophical lessons.

  • A great glimpse of Russia during WWII

    Absolutely stunning journey of young Jewish boy in Soviet Russia It shows in great detail life in different places: desolate village, collective farm, factory that produces weapon for Red army. The strength of Russian people multiplied by Communist oppression lead to victory over Nazi Germany. This boy was destined to survive interrogation by the NKVD, attack by drunk Russian man, sitting in T-34 tank under the fire of Panzer tank.
    I would advise this book to anyone.

    I just finished reading this amazing book, for the second time. Eventhough, the last time I read "Go My Son" was in 2001, I couldn't put it down again!!!
    May the chizuk one gets from reading this book, by seeing so clearly the Yad Hashem/Hand of God in ones life be a zechus for the neshama of the author, R' Chaim Shapiro.

  • Excellent
