9781588513571: Kindness of Strangers

Erna, a widow, and her only child, 16-year-old Alice, know they must leave Czechoslovakia, the country of their ancestors, before the Nazis take over complete control if they are to survive. They are joined by Belo, an enthusiastic Zionist. Escape plans are made. To facilitate their escape Alice and 25 year old Belo marry. The trio travel to Brindisi, Italy, from where they plan to sail clandestinely to Palestine. The ship never comes and they are stranded, deserted and destitute. They face an unknown fate in the summer of 1939. Making their way to Genoa they narrowly escape death when it is the first area in Italy to be attacked by the Allies. They spend nine years in Italy during which time the Italian people, overlooking differences of nationality and religion, show a simple, uncomplicated type of goodness and compassion.

The incidents in this account are true.
