Jacob's Rescue

A Holocaust Story

Add To Cart
Warsaw, Poland, 1941. World War II has been ranging for two years and the Nazis are forcing all Jews to leave their homes to live in a walled-in ghetto. Jacob Gutgelt is eight years old when his aunt takes him one day to meet Alex Roslan, a non-Jewish man who will pretend to be Jacob's father. When the guards go for their coffee break, Jacob and Alex slip through a hole in the wall and to a new life. This is the story, in fictionalized form, of the four years Jacob spent with the Roslan family, of the daily fear of being caught, of the bittersweet life with this brave and kind family who rescued Jacob and his brother from the hands of the Nazis. With an afterword by the authors and photos of the real Jacob and the Roslans.
