Summary
Facing lifelong separation, William and Ellen Craft fled north in disguise, risking detection at every turn, all for the sake of freedom from slavery... Douglas Mawson battled a power greater than any human villain when Mother Nature trapped him in her icy Antarctic jaws... In 1943, Nazi guards packed hundreds of Belgian Jews into train cars headed for Auschwitz. Simon Gronowski, 11 years old, was determined to escape... Three inmates vanished from Alcatraz in 1962, never to be seen again... During the Cold War, 29 Germans from communist-controlled East Germany escaped through a tunnel under the Berlin Wall
