Belgium, 1940

During World War II, Belgium, like the rest of Europe,
is a dangerous place for Jews. The Berkovitses have
become refugees; their only comfort in this terrifying
time is that they are all together. Then the unthinkable
occurs, and they are separated.
Thirteen-year-old Brudi and his father are trapped
in German-occupied Europe. They must flee, but their
passports have been confiscated. How will they escape
the threat looming over them?
This is the true story of a brave and resilient father
and son. Join them on their harrowing journey to reach
a safe haven. In this lesser-known account of Jewish
refugees on the perilous trek through France, Spain,
and Portugal, readers will be intrigued as they follow
Brudi and his father’s escape from Belgium.

The Escape series provides readers with compelling, true
narratives of Jewish heroism and survival. Each book
includes engaging photographs, a timeline, and a glossary.
