Bob Golan was twelve years old when the Nazis invaded his homeland from the west and the Soviets from the east. He and his family fled from Poland to the Ukraine and were later forcibly resettled in Siberia. Golan and his brother finally came to Palestine in the company of the Tehran Children -a group of children who were rescued by the Jewish Agency. In Palestine, Golan joined the Haganah Underground and fought in Israel's 1948 War of Independence. Golan's book is a fresh and engaging story of the experience of Jewish refugees in the Soviet Union and Israel.
