Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The author was 14 when Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union divided Poland between them. Many Poles, including Waydenfeld's family, were swiftly deported to Siberian labor camps. Only about half survived. Released in 1941, Waydenfeld and his parents endured a desperate journey across a hostile county and eventually reached the West. A remarkable tale.
