When God Looked The Other Way

This amazing and moving book is subtitled, An Odyssey of War, Exile, and Redemption. Written by Wesley Adamczyk, it is the riveting personal account of Wesley as a young boy as he and his family are torn from their home in eastern Poland during and following World War II. They are forced to survive in strange lands far from their homeland. How young Wesley survives is a story of courage and luck, of opportunities both found and created from his desire to live a free and a humane life. That he succeeds is due to both his will and his family's help and I wondered as I read why such an ordeal should have happened. But it did happen and I was moved by this book to be thankful for my own life.
