6. Run, Boy, Run is about a boy named Surik who's being hunted down by Nazi soliders to go to a concentration camp. He starts out being captured by the Nazis in Warsaw and escapes with a couple of other boys. he escapes, despite all the other kids get killed. he makes his way across Poland while stopping at houses for food and protection. Throught the story he starts to have memory loss. He mixes his name up and it becomes Jurick for the main part of the book. Over-all a pretty good book to learn about what some Holocaust children had to go through.
7.I liked this book because It was cool seeing Surik going through all those rough times with the nazi soliders, and to see how he managed to stay out of the concentration camps in the Holocaust. What I did'nt like about the book is how much killing it had in it. A lot of the story is pretty greusomly explained. I also didn't like how in some of the parts in the story it got slow.
