Rebekkah's Journey: A World War II Refugee Story
By: Ann Burg
Illustrated by: Joel Iskowitz
Age Level: 6-9
In 1944 a vacant army base in upstate New York became the temporary home of over 900 men, women and children who had fled Europe towards the end of World War II. With little more than the clothing on their backs, Rebekkah and her mother are just two of the many refugees who come to live in the camp. Adjusting to a strange new world and a new language, Rebekkah puts aside her own fears to try and recreate tiny bits of home for her mother.
