I’m always looking for great historical fiction and nonfiction to read. And the World War II/Holocaust era is one of my favorites to read about. So it was a pleasant surprise when I stumbled across this true story.
The time is different, but the situation is very similar. Just because the Holocaust was over doesn’t mean that Jewish families were suddenly safe. When Russia invaded Hungary in 1956, many feared that it was starting all over again. So families made the decision to flee the country, leaving behind everything they knew and loved.
This is the remarkable tale of the journey faced by the author’s parents. It’s a great read for young adults, providing names and faces to historical facts making the story come alive. And it’s quick and easy to read, guaranteed to keep the attention of younger readers.
