Summary"Nineteen-year-old Tommy Dick was killed, only to resurface. Born into a Hungarian family who had converted from Judaism, Tommy soon found out that in the eyes of the Nazis, he was still a Jew, still a target for murder. On the run and in disguise, Tommy was chased by death as much as he was by luck. Getting Out Alive is a vivid and gripping account of how the courageous acts of others, unshakeable friendships and Tommy’s own extraordinary quick wit conspired to save the life of this adventurous and determined young man in the cruellest of times." —Publisher
