“Simon’s Escape: A Story of the Holocaust” ISBN: 978-0-7660-3388-7
Also available in paperback: ISBN: 978-1-59845-216-7
In September 1939, young Simon looked out his window to see German soldiers on the streets of Warsaw, Poland shooting civilians.

Simon’s Escape follows Simon in his story of the Holocaust as he tries to survive the brutal conditions of the ghetto and a life on the run in Nazi-occupied territory.
“Young readers will experience history through the eyes of these brave, fictional characters,” says Mark Enslow, President. “The rich details throughout these books will make them valuable additions to classrooms and libraries. I’m confident these three new titles will be as popular as the other titles in this series. Our previously published “Pirate Hannah Pritchard” title is one of Enslow’s top-selling titles.”
New titles, which will be available September 1, 2010, as well as the previously published titles in this series, can be purchased directly from Enslow Publishers, Inc., major book distributors, retail bookstores, and online retailers.
