This is a Story of Strength and Courage

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-11-11) Excellent Permalink

In 1938, at age 12, Edith is placed aboard ship alone to travel from her home in Germany to Chicago, where she is to live with her uncle and his family. This is a story of strength and courage. The afterward is a must-read and is very informative.
