Listen to a heart-wrenching tale of survival. Learn the story behind the award-winning film “Schindler’s List”.

Leon Leyson, the youngest survivor of “Schindler’s List”, will tell the moving story of life inside the factory of Oscar Shindler, who kept the SS out and 1,200 Jews alive.

Born Leib Lejzon in Poland, his happy life with his parents and siblings ended with the Nazi invasion in 1939 when he was only ten years old and the family was imprisoned in the ghetto in Krakow. Three years later, his father brought him to work at Oscar Schindler’s enamelware factory. He was so small he had to stand on an upturned box to reach the machinery.

He caught the eye of Oscar Schindler, who became fond of the skinny Jewish kid. The factory owner called him “Little Leyson” and showed him many kindnesses such as providing extra rations of food and excusing him from the night shift when his vision began to fail. His two eldest brothers did not survive the war, but he, his parents and brother and sister were saved by Schindler.

Leyson’s miraculous survival inspired him to tell his story to school and community groups to ensure it is not forgotten. 

“Saved by an Angel” is a rare opportunity to hear an amazing, true story from the man who lived through it all.
