ESCAPE FROM THE NAZIS
by Gertrud Englander and Bonnie Dwork, with Johnny Dwork
In the early morning of November 10, 1938, the Nazis dragged Otto Englander from his home in Stuttgart, Germany and imprisoned him in Dachau Concentration Camp. It was Kristallnacht, a 24 hour reign of terror in which 1400 German Jewish synagogues and cemeteries and 7,000 Jewish shops were vandalized and 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and incarcerated in concentration camps. That event also marked the beginning of an amazing journey to freedom for Otto, his wife Gertud, and their two daughters, Bonnie and Anna. As Europe teetered on the brink of war, they endured ever-increasing persecution, conquered overwhelming obstacles, and miraculously escaped the Holocaust. This book features the first-hand accounts of Gertud and Bonnie as they reflect upon their amazing, frightening, and ultimately successful Escape from the Nazis.
