Read about immigrants, refugees, the Holocaust….Nearly 1400 children escaped Nazi-dominated Europe and were able to enter the United States on their own when America was opposed to most immigrants. Forced Journey: The Saga of Werner Berlinger is an award-winning middle-grade novel that recounts the poignant story of Werner Berlinger as he flees Germany in 1939 and ends up in New York City hoping his family can follow. Along the way Werner meets a charming, mischievous fellow refugee named Anika, uses his fists with neighborhood bullies and makes a friend, Sam, while caring for his new Mutti, Esther. In Werner's struggle to find a safe home in the U.S.A., he travels across the city from Second Avenue to Central Park to Harlem and back again. Forced Journey: the Saga of Werner Berlinger was inspired by the true accounts of children who fled Nazi-held Europe and came to America. The book is part of the Far and Away series, which features young people displaced and relocated between 1939-1945.
