Pivotal Action Breakdown

In the story, one of the pivotal actions that occurred was when the Balicki children took Jan along to switzerland. The children made that decision because Jan had no where else to go after they left and they felt pity for him.

I think that if the children did take Jan along then they wouldnt be able to make it to switzerland at the end of the book, Jan was a substantial help to the group because he knew where their father went and also had some strange talents that helped along the way
