Deepest Sympathy to him and his family, Leon I had the deepest honor to read "The Boy on The Wooden Box" which was probably the most touching emotionally empowering book I have ever read. You were an amazing part of history and may God welcome you with open arms

His story remains with me: I once had the honor to hear him speak. One could tell that he had a beautiful soul. His is a story of overcoming trauma with grace and dignity. My sincere condolences to his family. Shalom.

Rest in peace Mr. Leyson, my high school machine shop teacher for 3 years at Huntington Park High School, what you showed me i still do to this day at the very same place for 36 years, only recently did i learn of your passing and your life story and just for the first time saw the movie to learn more about it, i am for ever grateful to you and now wonder how all that affected your life has affected mine.
Thank you Mr.Leyson, Class of 1979

My father, Sol Swack, used to play tennis with Leon. Dad (now 90) absolutely loved him-would always talk about him, and would always add "he's a great guy". And he told me all about his story (which I also read in a book about the Jews rescued by Schindler). May he rest in peace.
