Having escaped from the eastern European concentration camp where he has spent most of his life, a twelve-year-old boy struggles to cope with an entirely strange world as he flees northward to freedom in Denmark. “[North to Freedom] is, to my mind, the single finest novel ever written for children of about ages 9 to 13.”--School Library Journal

This is one of the most poignant books I have ever read. It made me long for a world that David deserved to know - a world with only peace and love, and no brutality or violence.
