The Escape Artist | Jonathan Freedland

What an incredible story of survival of a man who would be one of the first (and only a handful of) Jews that escaped from Auschwitz. It‘s amazing how resilient he was and utterly heartbreaking what he had to go through - not just during his time there but after his escape as well. Well written and laid out well

That feeling when your book does not auto-renew and you have a couple days to finish it and you‘re only halfway through 😬

Not that I can‘t do it because I definitely should‘ve had it read by now but I need to make it a priority now or else deal with some fines 😂

This book was difficult to get into. I was about halfway through it before it sparked my interest. It also seemed really disjointed, not flowing smoothly. Fortunately, I was already familiar with Varian Fry‘s work so that held my interest. But from the beginning, I loved Nanée‘s canine companion Dagobert.

Interesting story of how Air Force group wanted to make war less lethal and how it did not turn out that way.

“Fear comes with the dark when you‘re lying still, waiting for the knock on the door. And fear is not always reasonable.”

Stefania is 16 when the Germans invade Poland. She must find a way to take care of her little sister and keep 13 Jews hidden and alive in her house, all while 2 German nurses are living in her spare bedroom. This is a remarkable story based on real people. Make sure you read the authors note at the end!

Did not live up to expectations. The author was too busy attempting to inject humor while describing horrific warfare.
