Friedmann and his family hoped that Czernowtiz, Romania, would provide the safe haven they desperately needed, but the power of a ruthless dictator would unfortunately choose another direction for them all. As Friedmann shares the details from his unforgettable and harrowing journey that spanned five countries and over twenty years, he chronicles life in the Jewish ghetto under the Romanians, his experiences in forced labor camps, and what life was like as a Jew during World War II when Czernowitz was conquered by German and Soviet armies. As Jews attempted to stay alive, Friedmann finally managed to escape from a work camp with nothing but his bravery. Later a Jewish underground agency transported him to Palestine, where he stayed in a refugee camp until he began a new life that would eventually take him to America.
