PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When the Nazis invade Poland in 1939, Yulian and his mother flee their home. They find refuge in the Russian-occupied sector of their country. But as a Jewish family, they know they won't be safe for long. In desperation, they decide on a risky escape attempt, hiring a guide to take them secretly over the snow-covered Carpathian Mountains to a neighboring country. But a mother and child have never tried this dangerous route before. Readers will never forget their true story of courage and heroism.

This 29-page novel packet includes questions for each of the 21 chapters, including the afterword. Also included are vocabulary words for students to define or use in a complete sentence.
