Product description

The classic story of a concentration camp escapee struggling to accept the strange and overwhelming world that freedom brings. One day, a guard helps David to escape the Eastern European concentration camp where he has spent his entire life. David has never known his parents, or any world outside the camp. Now he is free – and utterly alone. As he travels through Italy and Denmark, he sees and experiences all kinds of new things: sea, mountains, flowers, colours, the taste of fruit, people laughing and smiling. But David’s thin features, haunted eyes and polite manner are strange to other people. Will David ever learn to give and accept love – and find a place where he truly belongs? Intense, heartfelt and compelling, I Am David is one of the best-loved tales to address the experiences of concentration camp survivors.
