One of the darkest periods in history... 

In a Jewish ghetto, Max Rosen and his sister Zena struggle to live after their father is taken away by the Nazis. With barely enough food to survive, the siblings make a daring escape from Nazi soldiers into the nearby forest.

Max and Zena are brought to a safe camp by Jewish resistance fighters. But soon, bombs are falling all around them. Can Max and Zena survive the fallout of the Nazi invasion? 

With art by Álvaro Sarraseca and text adapted by Georgia Ball, Lauren Tarshis' beloved and acclaimed I Survived series takes on vivid new life in this explosive graphic novel edition. Publishing in simultaneous hardcover and paperback editions, the book also includes nonfiction back matter with historical photos and facts about World War II and the Holocaust.

 

MY REVIEW
**This review is courtesy of my 14 year old son who is obsessed with the I Survived books and WWII era history**

I liked the way the pictures were set up like a comic book. I also liked the historical accuracy, like the train being blown up. Another thing I liked about the book was how the characters were played out, such as how they started in the ghetto all the way to becoming resistance fighters.
