Meanwhile, Kurt made the difficult voyage, all alone, to America, to escape the war.When Papa was ordered to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp, Fritz-desperate not to lose his beloved father-insisted he must go too. Together, they endured countless atrocities to survive.Jeremy Dronfield authentically and accurately captures this family tale of bravery, love, hope, and survival with the help of extensive research and primary sources like Gustav's diary and interviews with family members. Maps, black-and-white photos, a timeline of events, a glossary, and more are included.�
