Isaac's parents have left Poland and moved to Paris to have a better life.  Poland was becoming a very dangerous place for Jews.  Hitler's influence was spreading and Jews were now being persecuted in Poland.  Life in Paris was good for the family and Isaac thrived.  But then the unspeakable happened -- the Germans invaded France and once again it was very dangerous to be a Jew.  After his father was arrested, Isaac's mother decided it was time for them to flee.  But things don't go as she hopes.  Isaac Millman shares with us his story of his survival during the Holocaust.
