A very moving though never maudlin story with good characterization and a fast pace, [Journey to America] will be a definite asset to any collection. Young Lisa Platt tells of her family's fortunate escape from Nazi Germany…. There is not a great deal of information about what happened to the Jews in Germany, but the terror and hopes of the people are very realistically portrayed.
