The Boy On The Wooden Box
By Leon Leyson
Memoirs focus on a brief period of time
Uses a story format-must have conflict
Reveals writer's thoughts/feelings and lessons learned
One lesson the author learned is "he who saves lives saves the world entire." page 164.
The quote shows how important one life is because one life matters.
Writer uses detail description and figurative langauge that bring the story to life
This quote from the book shows how useless they were actually in making ammo,but shows how Oskar Schindler and that wooden box made Leon look useful to the war effort helping him stay alive during the war.
