Survival and Love: Double Escape from the Nazis (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


This year is the eightieth anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War. In that year, Lizzy Schwarz was a teenage Jew enjoying life in Boskovice, Czechoslovakia. Far to the east in Poland, teenage Jerzy Dyszkiewicz had recently qualified as an Officer Cadet in the Polish Army.

During the war, Lizzy and her family were interned in Nazi concentration camps. Lizzy's mother died from ill health brought on by cruel treatment, her sister and father later died at the Auschwitz death camp. Lizzy however miraculously survived three of those horrendous camps.

In September 1939, Jerzy's unit was moving west to meet the invading Germans when they were captured by the Soviet Army advancing east. They were handed over to the Germans and sent to a series of POW camps to work. In 1942, Jerzy and three close comrades escaped from a camp near the Belgian border and, surviving many close shaves, finally made it to England.

After the war Lizzy and Jerzy coincidentally met and later married in London on 17th September 1955.

This is their incredible story of a double escape from Nazis with an ultimate happy ending.
