Srulik, theres no time. I want you to remember what Im going to tell you. You have to stay alive. You have to! Get someone to teach you how to act like a Christian, how to cross yourself and pray. . . . The most important thing, Srulik, he said, talking fast, is to forget your name. Wipe it from your memory. . . . But even if you forget everything--even if you forget me and Mama--never forget that youre a Jew. And so, at only eight years old, Srulik Frydman says goodbye to his father for the last time and becomes Jurek Staniak, an orphan on the run in the Polish countryside at the height of the Holocaust. With the danger of capture by German soldiers ever-present, Jurek must fight against starvation, the punishing Polish winters, and widespread anti-Semitism as he desperately searches for refuge. Told with the unflinching honesty and unique perspective of such a young child, Run, Boy, Run is the extraordinary account of one boys struggle to stay alive in the face of almost insurmountable odds--a story all the more incredible because it is true.
