A boy should never be forced to gather the dead or watch his family starve to death. Based upon the hidden and illuminating video and audio recordings of interviews with the author’s father and grandmother, Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boytells the true and tormenting story of a 7-year-old boy during the Holocaust. When Germany occupied Poland in 1939, he and his family were confined to the Warsaw Ghetto, along with 400,000 other Jews. Young Sam Gingold helps his family survive by smuggling food and medicines, and as the war continues, is forced to labor under Nazi rule in the walled city within a city. After a harrowing underground escape, the family is pursued by the Gestapo across the Polish countryside. A compelling, poignant story of courage, resilience, and determination. For the Gingold family, "survivor" is a living word.
"Jeffrey Gingold’s 'Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boy' is a gripping, harrowing, and yet triumphant recounting of the saga of his family before, during, and after the Shoah. It will make you cry. It will make you seethe in anger. Most importantly, it will make you remember."
-- Rabbi Jacob Herber

Jeffrey Gingold captures the confusion and terror of the Holocaust through the eyes of his father’s experience. … While Sam is lucky and survives with his family intact, this story gives voice to the millions who were not so fortunate.
-- Ellie Gettinger, Education Director, Jewish Milwaukee Museum
An incredibly compelling, powerful, engaging story that ignites the most intense interest of its reader. It is a must-read book.
