“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.

“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.
