Item description for Parallel Lines: A Journey from Childhood to Belsen by Peter Lantos...
A story of survival in the face of unthinkable circumstances, this recollection of the Holocaust comes from the viewpoint of a young Hungarian boy. The author was just a child when he was taken from his sleepy, provincial hometown to the Bergen-Belson concentration camp. After the camp was liberated by American forces and handed over to the Russian army, he made his escape from the Russians by stowing away on a freight train. An adult might have found these sinister challenges insurmountable, but through the lens of youth, the author saw adventure and excitement despite the very real grief and terror that was a part of growing up.
