Lonek's Journey: The True Story of a Boy's Escape to Freedom
Lonek's Journey tells the true story of an 11-year-old Jewish boy's escape from Nazi-occupied Poland and his subsequent deportation to a Siberian gulag. When he is freed from the Russian slave labor camp, he begins a two-year journey over thousands of miles of sea and land, to find freedom in what was then Palestine. This little-known story of the rescue of almost 1000 Jewish children is a story that every one should know. Illustrated with maps and black and white photographs throughout.
