    The beautiful young Esther has been chosen as queen by the king of Persia. Surrounded by servants, each day she wears gorgeous dresses and eats delicious foods in his luxurious court. Still, she remembers the promise made to her uncle when she was a child. She tells no one that she is Jewish. One day the prime minister, angry because Esther’s uncle does not bow to him, arranges a decree ordering all Jews to be killed. Will Esther find the courage to stand up for her people, even if it means revealing her religion to the king? Diane Wolkstein is an internationally-known folklorist. In Esther’s Story, her rich combination of Biblical text and oral legend illuminates the origin of the feast of Purim.

    For thousands of years, the stories contained within the Torah—the first five books of the Hebrew Bible—have been passed down, revered, and studied. From Adam and Eve, Noah and the Flood, and Abraham’s near-sacrifice of Isaac, through Jacob and his twelve sons, Joseph and his coat of many colors, and finally to Moses, who led his people out of slavery in Egypt and accepted God’s Ten Commandments, these stories tell the history of the Jewish people and their relationship with God. In this unique volume, author Amy Ehrlich adapts the five books of the Torah into a single narrative, focusing on the familiar stories and figures while retaining the complex beauty of the sacred text.

    Even in the darkest of times—especially in the darkest of times—there is room for strength and bravery. This remarkable memoir from Leon Leyson, one of the youngest children on Oskar Schindler’s list to survive the Holocaust, is evidence of that. Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) was only ten years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and his family was forced to relocate to the Kraków ghetto. With incredible luck, perseverance, and grit, Leyson was able to survive the sadism of the Nazis, including that of the demonic Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the concentration camp outside Kraków. Ultimately it was the generosity and cunning of one man—Oskar Schindler—that saved Leon Leyson’s life and the lives of his mother, his father, and two of his four siblings. Schindler added their names to his list of workers in his factory—a list that became renowned throughout the world: Schindler’s List. This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler’s List child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Most notable is the lack of rancor, the lack of venom, and the abundance of dignity in Mr. Leyson’s telling. The Boy on the Wooden Box is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you’ve ever read.
