Simply Books presents... The Boy Who Followed His Father Into Auschwitz with Jeremy Dronfield
Date: Tuesday 29th October
Venue: Ford's Lane Church, Ford's Lane, Bramhall, SK7 1DQ
Where there is family, there is hope . . .
Nazi police seize Gustav Kleinmann, a Jewish upholsterer and his son, Fritz, and send the pair to Buchenwald in Germany. There begins an unimaginable ordeal that sees the pair beaten, starved and forced to build the very concentration camp they are held in.
When Gustav is set to be transferred to Auschwitz, a certain death sentence, his son refuses to leave his side. Throughout the horrors they witness and the suffering they endure, there is one constant that keeps them alive: the love between father and son.
Based on Gustav's secret diary and meticulous archive research, The Boy Who Followed His Father Into Auschwitz tells their incredible story for the first time - a story of courage and survival unparalleled in the history of the Holocaust.
Join us for an unforgettable evening with Jeremy Dronfield as he tells the inspiring true story of a father and son's fight to stay together and survive the Holocaust, a reminder of both the best and the worst of humanity, the strength of family ties, and the power of the human spirit: a story which will make you see the world differently.
