Escaping the Nazis

Written by Betsy Rathburn

In 1943, Jan Baalsrud traversed the icy mountains and fjords of Nazi\-occupied Norway. The journey was fraught with danger, but Baalsrud received plenty of help along the way. This graphic nonfiction title traces his treacherous voyage, including his interactions with the Nazis, his battle with the elements, and his journey to safety. Actual quotes bring history to the page, a map shows off Baalsruds route, and a timeline helps readers trace his path to survival.
