Escape—Teens on the Run

Primary Sources From the Holocaust

Series: True Stories of Teens in the Holocaust

By Linda Jacobs Altman

Stuck in an airtight boxcar on a cattle train, Eva was destined for a Nazi death camp. Eva's father told her and her two siblings to jump off the speeding train . . . maybe they could survive. Her brother and sister were both shot and killed by the Nazis. At seventeen, Eva had to live alone, on the run, to survive. Thousands of Jews lived on the run during the Holocaust. Some were able to escape Germany before the war started. Others had to move throughout Europe to flee the Nazis. And many more could not escape at all. Author Linda Jacobs Altman details the stories of young people who escaped the Nazi grasp and survived the war.

". . . this book presents excerpts of firsthand accounts of those running from the Nazis and other persecutors during the Holocaust, intertwined into cohesive sections."

Children's Literature

"Well researched and clearly written, this book provides an excellent discussion of one of mankind’s darkest periods . . . She presents her information in a well balanced, concise, and lucid manner."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, May 2010

"Photographs, lists of resources, and chapter notes make the information accessible and encourage further reading."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2010

"Many histories use primary sources but fail to do so effectively. These books succeed by integrating into their narratives lengthy quotes from Jewish and other teens whose lives were endangered or changed by the Nazi regime . . . Certain to capture readers' attention, these are excellent purchases."

School Library Journal, April 2010

". . . a solid series with a lot of eyewtiness accounts . . ."
