Schindler’s List survivor salutes his savior

He refers to himself as “the most fortunate person in the whole world.” To the rest of us, he is Holocaust survivor Leon Leyson, born Leib Lejzon. After two years in World War II concentration camps and several more in a displaced-persons camp near Frankfurt, Germany, Leyson went to work for Oskar Schindler, the German businessman whose employment of more than 1,000 Polish Jews during the Holocaust saved their lives. Leyson now travels the world, speaking about the horrors of the Holocaust and the privilege of having known the man about whom the film Schindler’s List was made.
