Description - Roman'S Journey by Roman Halter
Roman Halter is a boisterous schoolboy in 1939 when he and his family gather behind net curtains to watch the neighbours of their small town greeting the arrival of Hitler's army with kisses and sawstika flags. Within days, the family home has been seized and 12 year-old Roman becomes a slave of the local SS chief and a silent witness to the brutal murder of his Jewish classmates. This is the beginning of a remarkable six-year journey through some of the darkest caverns of Nazi Europe where the lives of every other member of his family and almost all of the 800-strong community of his boyhood are lost, but remembered here.
