Nineteen-year-old Tommy Dick is killed, only to resurface. Born into a Hungarian family who had converted from Judaism, Tommy soon finds out that in the eyes of the Nazis, he's still a Jew, still a target for extermination. On the run and in disguise, Tommy is chased by death as much as he is by luck. 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 an adventurous and determined young man in the cruelest of times.
