As Hitler rose to power, they again faced persecution. Realizing the danger of remaining in Europe, they continued their odyssey, first to Palestine, and ultimately to the relative safety of China and Japan.

In 1931 Tokyo, their son Isaac was born. The first eleven years of his life were relatively stable, except for the intimidating influence of his father, a strict disciplinarian. But the sudden onset of World War II with the bombing of Pearl Harbor altered the course of the familys life yet again. They moved from city to city in war-torn Japan, surviving privations and the bombing of Japan by the United States.The subsequent US occupation led Isaac to be befriended by a US Marine Colonel from far-off Arkansas.

Colonel (later Lieutenant General) John Calvin Toby Munn gave Isaac (Ike) the opportunity to immigrate to America. Continuing his familys circuitous journey, Isaac landed in Hawaii in the summer of 1946, ready to experience yet another culture.From the young age of fifteen, Isaac has been encouraged to share his familys fascinating story. With this book, he has finally accomplished what so many have asked him to do.
