Benjamin Mandil was born into a happy, middle-class Jewish family in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. Then came World War II, and everything changed. In this memoir, Mandil tells the story of how he and his family survived the Nazis by escaping to Italy, where they were considered “civilian prisoners of war,” and the lasting impact his experiences had on him. “Living through the Second World War . . . was also a time of adventure. . . . Everything in the world went away fast and everything in the world came at me fast.”
