Synopsis

EXODUS FROM BELGIUM IN 1940 – A SYNOPSIS This book chronicles the escape of a Jewish Belgian family, the Bornsteins, from the onslaught of an invading German army at the start of World War II. After a perilous journey through France, Spain, and Portugal, and a brief stay in New York, they found safety in British Guiana (now Guyana), where Dr. Bornstein was Chief Physician at a Tuberculosis Hospital in Vreed en Hoop, across the Demerara River from Georgetown. Paul and Viviane Bornstein were educated in the British tradition and experienced interesting encounters in this unusual environment. At the end of the War, the family emigrated to the United States, where the children established new lives.
