Heading westward into the wind, ten year old Eddie pedaled his bike as hard as he could. Ahead of him was his mother, also on her bike; behind him, two “uncles” recruited by his father to oversee this little caravan as it fled to safety into the early morning darkness. There was a suitcase on each bike. Eddie’s two little sisters each sat on a suitcase behind an “uncle.”
They traveled to a small town named Zweeloo, 25 to 30 miles from their home. The going was hard, with headwinds, and fear of German checkpoints. One of the “uncles” pulled Eddie along with a piece of rope.
Little did Eddie know this would not be the last time they were forced to flee, to run and hide. Would they be caught next time, or worse yet, killed? Where is dad all through this? Why isn’t he here helping us?
"Courage Born of Faith…An Account Of Survival Under The Nazi Yoke…" is a well told account of this family who lived through it all, survived, and like Job in the Old Testament, gained rich blessings.
