Survivor’s Journey From the Alps to the Red Sea

An orphan boy. Life under a fake identity. A heroic tale of survival.

Marek Herman’s life had not easy from the beginning.

And yet, not even growing up an orphan in the city of Lvov, Poland, had prepared him for what the future had in store.

Nazi Germany invades Poland in 1939 and changes the lives of people in the entire continent.

Jews instantly come under persecution. In order to save himself, Marek, lives under a borrowed identity, and crosses the border into Italy together with the Italian soldiers who were stationed in Poland.

A chance encounter he happens to witness, completely transforms the rest of his life.

Marek immediately joins the resistance in Northern Italy, where the Jewish boy fights side by side with his new friends, the anti-fascist fighters.

Survivor’s Journey From the Alps to the Red Sea is a spine-tingling book of memoirs, describing Marek Herman’s life, heroism and hope for a better future during all the vicissitudes he goes through from Poland, through the Alps, and all the way to the Red Sea.
