Of the approximately 15,000 children imprisoned in the Nazi concentration
camp of Térézin (Theresienstadt ) near Prague, less than 100
survived. Gidon Lev is one of those children.


On the face of it, The True Adventures of Gidon Lev is the story of an
elderly Holocaust survivor—a man who made it through horrifying events
and lived to tell the tale. But Gidon (pronounced “Gid-awn”) did
more than survive—he thrived. Gidon’s is the story of a little
boy who never truly grew up, with a desperate need to belong and to build a
family for himself. His story spans the beginnings of a fledgling country, a
first marriage gone seriously wrong, a second marriage that lasted for over
forty years and a late-in-life relationship with a writer and editor, thirty
years his junior with whom his adventures continued, apace.
