Genre: Historical Fiction


Escaping into the night is a book about the Holocaust. The book is about a girl named Halinia Rudowski who has to run away and survive trying not to get captured by the Nazis. The problem is they she has no supplies and very little food. This story can make you very emotional and make you grateful for what you have. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good adventure,Heartwarming story. It teaches me that the best things come from the worst situations. If she would have never come from the ghetto and ran she would not have met er best friends.
