Author Biography
Leyson, Leon (Author)
Leon Leyson was born in Narewka, Poland on September 15, 1929. He was almost ten when German forces invaded Poland in 1939. He was one of the youngest members of Schindler's List. He emigrated to the United States in 1949. He graduated from Los Angeles City College; California State University, Los Angeles; and Pepperdine University. He taught at Huntington Park High School in Huntington Park, California, for 39 years. Believing that no one would be interested in his story, he rarely spoke about his experiences until after the film Schindler's List was released. His children's book, The Boy on the Wooden Box: How the Impossible Became Possible... on Schindler's List, was published after his death. He died in January 2013 at the age of 83.
