This is the story of four boys desperate to live....they survived as boys and came back as men to tell their story. The Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany was a Nazi slave labor camp where thousands of Jews were killed. As teenage European Jewish boys were being transferred to Buchenwald, the German Communist-led underground there made a conscious decision to protect them. These teenagers did not work and were cared for and protected by the block leaders, who saw in these boys the hope for the future. These leaders strove until the last days of the war to keep them from danger. On April 11, 1945, Buchenwald was liberated, and nearly 1,000 boys survived.
