Escape Into Danger: The True Story of a Kievan Girl in World War II

by

Escape into Danger tells the remarkable true story of a young girl's perilous adventures and coming-of-age during World War II. Only seventeen when Germany invaded Russia in 1941, Sophia left her native Kiev, unwittingly escaping the Babi Yar massacre. On her journey into Russia, she fled from flooding, dodged fires and bombs, and fell in love. At Stalingrad, Sophia turned back in a futile attempt to return home to her mother. Stranded in a Nazi-occupied town, accepted as a Russian, she found work with a sympathetic German officer and felt secure until a local girl recognized her as a Jew. Within days, Sophia's boss spirited her to safety with his family in Poland. Soon, though, Sophia was on the run again, this time to Nazi Germany, where she somehow escaped detection through the rest of the war. She met and married a like-minded German soldier and started a family, but she was again forced to flee, this time from her abusive husband, turned vindictive, homicidal stalker after their divorce. Throughout, Sophia maintained her grit, charm, and optimism, the qualities that saved her as she time and again made her "escape into danger." Hide synopsis
