“One Step Ahead of the Nazis” with Fred Gross

On Thursday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m. author Fred Gross will talk about his experience fleeing the Nazis as a child during World War II. In his book, One Step Ahead of Hitler: A Jewish Child’s Journey through France, Gross recounts his family’s flight from the German invasion of Belgium. From the bombing on their neighborhood in Antwerp to the end of the war, Gross and his family survived their harrowing journey because of their ingenuity and determination, and with the help of the brave men and women who were willing to stand up to their government. His story is one of war, family, and the power of memory. This program will be held in the Community Room at the Library.
