This is the true story of Edward Weiss who in 1938, at the young age of eleven, left the United States with his family to go to the aid of a Jewish relative in Germany.  This was only to be a short trip, but they are forced to remain until the end of World War II.  Follow Edward on his journey that begins as a boy trying to adjust to life in a foreign country.  His journey takes him from being a non-German speaking American citizen to a soldier in Hitler's army, and years later returning to the U. S. to serve as an American soldier in the Korean War. 


A story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time puts Edward in danger many times over.  You'll read about the sacrifices his parents had to make for the safety and well-being of Edward and his sisters - and the determination of a young boy doing what he must to survive.
