I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944: The Graphic Novel by Lauren Tarshis
Illustrator: Álvaro Sarraseca
It’s been years since the Nazis invaded Max Rosen’s home country of Poland. All the Jewish people, including Max’s family, have been forced to live in a ghetto. At least Max and his sister, Zena, had Papa with them . . . until two months ago, when the Nazis took him away. Now Max and Zena are on their own.
One day, with barely enough food to survive, the siblings make a daring escape from Nazi soldiers into the nearby forest. They are found by Jewish resistance fighters, who take them to a safe camp.
But soon, grenades are falling all around them. Can Max and Zena survive the fallout of the Nazi invasion?
