When Joseph Joffo was ten years old, his father gave him and his brother fifty francs and instructions to flee Nazi-occupied Paris and, somehow, get to the south where France was free. Previously out of print, this book is a captivating and memorable story; readers will instinctively find themselves rooting for these children caught in the whirlwind of World War II.

About the Author

Joseph Joffo was born in 1931 in Paris. Since 1971, when his memoir became a bestseller in France and was translated into eighteen languages, he has published eight more books of nonfiction and fiction.
