    High;y Recommended Read

    Escape from Warsaw is a book about three children, Ruth, Edek, and Bronia. The story starts in 1940, when the Nazis took their father away to a slave labor camp call Zakyna in South Poland. Later the Nazis took their mother to a slave labor camp in Germany, leaving the children all alone in Warsaw. The father, Joseph, manages to escape from Zakyna, and heads back to Warsaw. He found out that his wife was taken to Germany and his children have not been seen since. He entrusts a sword and a message to a small boy named Jan. He said that if you ever find my children, tell them that I am going to Switzerland to find their mother. Meanwhile the children have been hiding from the Nazis in Warsaw. Edek eventually gets caught and is taken to a slave labor camp. For two years, Ruth and Bronia heard no news about Edek. They continued to live in Warsaw until they met a boy named Jan who tells them about their father. Immediately, the children set out to take their long journey to Switzerland, and along the way, run into many difficulties.

    This story really speaks to me as a human being. I feel sorry for Ruth, Edek, and Bronia because their parents were taken away from them. I feel sorry for Jan because he doesn't even have any parents. I can't imagine what it felt like for Ruth, Edek, Bronia, and Jan to be hiding inside a farmers house, silently hoping that the Nazis wouldn't discover them. The book held my attention throughout the whole story. They went through many adventures that had me sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out what the outcome will be. I think the author's purpose for writing this book was to inform the readers about what it was like for children during the Holocaust. I would highly recommend this book for all ages.

    Escape from Warsaw

    It was a dark night in Warsaw, Poland in 1942 when one of the darkest moments in the Balicki Family occurred. The kids Mom and Dad were both taken away by Nazi Storm Troopers. This makes the 3 children alone in a war-struck city. But one day, a boy named Jan, shows the children a long lost memory, a silver sword, the exact one they gave their Dad before he was taken away. This sends the children off to Switzerland in great hope of rescuing their parents. Encountering tough weather, harsh sickness, and grim soldiers, the only thing they focus on is finding their long lost parents. I really enjoyed this book because it had a good plot, great action, and a meaningful moral. I think the author created a good plot because it really gets the readers attention and this plot is great for an action book with the text luring the reader into the next chapter. I like the action because it really got you trembling with anxiety, even if you aren¿t actually in the book. Finally, I especially liked the moral because it gives out a good message on never giving up and always having determination.

    A classic

    I first read this book over thirty years ago and recently recommended it to my son when he was looking for a good book (out of the Harry Potter/fantasy genre) for a book report. The novel neither sentimalizes nor sensationalizes war. It captures the impact of poverty and violence and fear on children better than most any novel (for youngsters or adults) that I can think of. And it also captures the capacity for children (and human beings in general) to rise to the occasion of overwhelming challenges. (The coda of what happens to the characters after the story's resolution both inspires and sobers). This is one of a dozen titles that I think every family library should have.

    Who wouldn't like this book?

    Wow! This book left me breathless, and wordless. It kept me on the edge of my seet. It was definately a real page-turner. I couldn't put it down, and I ended up reading the whole book in 2 days! I am a 13 year old 8th grader. We read this book in school, but I finished in 2 days. I, along with my 30 classmates, enjoyed it so much! I think this book is perfect for kids/students/anyone the age of maybe 13 and up. It was a very good book, and I, should i say we, enjoyed reading every page of it!

    I Loved This Book

    I thought that this book was the best, because it was comical yet serious and had me on the edge of my seat in a few places. The characters could all be related too. The events sounded like they could have taken place. I'm gonna read all of Ian Serraillier's books.

    The family test

    This book is a wonderful middle school level book. It is a fairly easy read but still interesting for any age. It is about a family that gets torn apart by war. The father was sent away for not obeying Hitler. The mother was taken away by the Nazis in the middle of the night. The 3 children and a new friend named Jan are on a long journey from Warsaw to Switzerland. The father will meet them there. Will they make it through all the challenges? Will their father still be there? Read the book to find out.

    Great Book For Any Age

    The book is about WW2, and how a Polish family gets torn apart. The mother is sent to work in Germany, and the father is sent to jail for not obeying Hitler. The father escapes, and goes to Switzerland, 'the meeting place for the family.' Their three kids learn what has happened, and head for Switzerland.

    Escape From Warsaw

    Escape From Warsaw was a very well written book. It kept me very excited and wanting to read more. The descriptions of Ruth's life and her worries were so real that it felt like I was actually there. After her parents were taken away from her my heart just sank. It kept me so into the book that I couldn't put it down. I finished it in a day. It's succinct reality of this book during WW2 made it even more exhilerating. After reading it I can sort of get a feeling of what it was really like during that time. Unfortunately all the endings during WW2 didn't end like this.

    Escape From Warsaw

    I would give Escape From Warsaw 5 stars. It is a really good book. I liked reading it because it kept you aware and excited throughout the entire book. It really makes you feel like you were the one this was happening to. The description in this book is unbelievable. You vould actually paint the whole story in my mind. I knew exactly what the characters were feeling. It keeps you continuously wondering whats going to happen.

    After 35 years I still remember it vividly.

    I read Escape from Warsaw as a fourth grader (1965) and it has stayed with me ever since.
