When his home town of Danzig was occupied by the Nazis, young Felix
Nasimov fled to Palestine, only to be stalled in Yugoslavia. Encouraged
by his friend Alex, he set about writing articles for the British
press, but they never arrived.
Having spent his childhood in Danzig (now Gdansk), Alex was sent to Imperial College to finish his education. However, the Nazis were soon to invade Poland; his father¹s business was disbanded and Alex found himself unable to fund his passage through university. He joined the RAF instead.
Fortunately, Alex's family managed to escape the Nazi regime, helped by an SS man who returned a favour once given him by Alex's father.
Alex's childhood friend, Felix Nasimov, was less fortunate. What followed was a series of correspondence between Alex and Felix, in which Felix describes how he had been transported to Yugoslavia en route to Palestine.
