I am reviewing Hedy’s Journey: The True Story of a Hungarian Girl Fleeing the Holocaust through Capstone Press and Netgalley:
This story is geared towards Middle Grade reader’s. We learn of a young Jewish Women having to travel through Europe on her own in the Middle of World War Two during the time of Holocaust. She was Jewish and had to flee the Nazi’s.
She talks about her cousin Marika being killed by the Nazi’s in that time. That Summer her Forty Nine year old Father was forced to spend three months in a labor camp as a “waterboy” by the Hungarian Nazi officers.
The family was granted passports for America but they had to travel separately for risk of being found out. Hedy did not look Jewish so it was easier for her to travel alone.
This is the story of Hedy’s family one of the lucky one’s who were able to escape the Nazi’s and find freedom here in America.
I give Hedy’s Journey five out of five stars.
