Based on an adult book by Dorit Bader Whiteman called Escape Via Siberia: A Jewish Child's Odyssey of Survival, this tells the story of the escape of thousands of Polish Jews from the Nazis, through the experiences of one boy. After fleeing with his family from Poland to Siberia, he is separated from his mother and finds himself to be one of the more than 900 Jewish children known as the "Teheran children." This version covers Lonek's two year journey over thousands of miles by land and sea to find freedom in Palestine. There are maps and photographs throughout.
