Gidon Lev arrived at the Nazi concentration camp of Theresienstadt in former Czechoslovakia as prisoner number 885. He was six years old.
Gidon Lev's life has spanned the horrors of the Holocaust, the beginnings of a fledgling country, and the power of social media.
A remarkable octogenarian who refuses to be defined by a tragic and traumatic past, Gidon teaches young people important lessons about tolerance and hope.
Richard Pike represents Gidon and Julie Gray at C&W literary. Let's Make Things Better will be available in Fall 2024 (Hachette/Pan Macmillan.) Gidon has appeared on multiple media outlets in Europe and Israel. Gidon and Julie tell Gidon's story as they combat antisemitism today. Their contribution to the study of online antisemitism was recently awarded the Shimon Perez Prize in Berlin. Gidon and Julie have also been recognized in the Jewish 100 List by the Tel Aviv Institute.
