Erwin, Walter, John and Bruno Sax are four Jewish brothers who fled Czechoslovakia ahead of the Nazi German takeover, before World War II.

Escaping down the Danube River during dangerous times, they reached Palestine where they enlisted in the British Army. Captured on Crete, they spent four years interned in a Prisoner of War camp in Poland, always under threat and constantly fearful for family members who had stayed behind.

Surviving the war, and concerned by the Communist takeover, the brothers fled again and rebuilt their lives far from their beloved homeland, foreign soil becoming home for their children and grandchildren.

A true tale of survival by four exceptional men.

Geoff Trigg is a retired local government engineer, born in 1950, in Warrnambool, Victoria, with a strong interest in his own family's history. His professional career left him little time to research his first wife's family history until retirement. Increased connections and detailed information from her extended family in Israel, Canada and the United States of America brought together a combination of skills and passion to include all available information regarding these extraordinary men in one book for wider family use and study. Geoff's interest in Australian and European history, conditions faced by immigrants to Australia from post-war Europe and the disaster to the Jewish people caused by the Holocaust was focused by his wife's written memories and stories about her father and his brothers. This was expanded with the information and photos supplied from her cousins and uncles.
