Paul Sekelj and Trudy Katzenstein, a talented young couple very much in love, found their world collapsing as persecution of Jews moved toward the Final Solution. Having fled to Paris, they were forced to join the exodus of approximately five million French from the city. When all seemed lost, the French Resistance organized a plan for escape across the Pyrénées into Spain. Thus began the incredible journey to freedom, fraught with perils and hardships never imagined, but now carefully documented and beautifully illustrated, with a surprise ending. Judi Cahorn s recounting of her parents escape is operatic in scope: suffering, death, treachery and murder; love, loyalty, immense courage, kindness and at long last shelter and new life. The lessons offered to persons of all ages are timeless.
