Daniel barely remembers leading a normal life before the Nazis came to power in 1933. He can still picture once being happy and safe, but memories of those days are fading as he and his family face the dangers threatening Jews in Hitler's Germany in the late 1930s. No longer able to practice their religion, vote, own property, or even work, Daniel's family is forced from their home in Frankfurt and sent on a long and dangerous journey, first to the Lodz ghetto in Poland and then to Auschwitz-- the Nazi death camp.Though many around him lose hope in the face of such terror, Daniel, supported by his courageous family, struggles for survival. He finds hope, life, and even love in the midst of despair. Although Daniel is a fictitious character, his story was inspired by the real experiences of many of the more than one million children who died in the Holocaust.

"A fictional account of a Jewish boy in Germany in the late 1930s, DANIEL'S STORY was first published as part of an exhibit at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Its origin lends authenticity to this compelling, chilling story. Although narrator Daniel Carpenter-Gold's pitch is right for the voice of a teenage boy, his delivery is mediocre. The level of drama is uneven; at times it's too forceful for a younger listening audience. Further, the excess drama somewhat distracts from the important story told in the voice of young Daniel. Regardless, these shortfalls should not prevent listeners from taking advantage of this opportunity to learn more about a difficult time in history, especially one that is shared from such a unique point of view.
