The Game
Leonard Wieneski was arrested by the Gestapo in 1940 and taken to Buchenwald concentration camp. He was 18 years old. In order to cope with the horrors of camp life, he sought some form of escapism and found it in a small dice which inspired him t« invent and create a game.
The Game is the story of one man's survival in a world of destruction.
