Simon's Escape

A Story of the Holocaust

Series: Historical Fiction Adventures (HFA)

By Bonnie Pryor

In September 1939, Simon looked out his window to see German soldiers shooting civilians. Bombs from airplanes rattled the windows of his home and machine-gun fire echoed in the streets. Simon and his family lived in Warsaw, Poland. On this day, Simon’s world would be shattered. The invading Nazis would force his family to live in a ghetto because they were Jewish. Follow Simon in his story of the Holocaust as he tries to survive the brutal conditions of the ghetto and a life on the run in Nazi-occupied territory.

"This title . . . is a compelling, informative introduction to Holocaust history . . ."

Booklist, December 1, 2010

". . . the books have straightforward, chronological plot lines . . . Providing engaging reading for young readers about complex and, at times, frightening historical events is no small task, and both books do an admirable job of presenting numerous details of daily family and community life while portraying threatening, occasionally horrific, and ultimately life-changing events."

VOYA, April 2011

"This is engaging, suspenseful, well-written historical fiction with interesting characters and a well paced plot."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, January 2011

"Include this fast-reading book with factual accounts of survivors and rescuers in a Holocaust curriculum."
