Trapped in Hitler’s Web ft. Marsha Skrypuch

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Marsha Skrypuch writes about war from a young person’s view. Her latest book, Trapped in Hitler’s Web, takes the reader on a journey from the Ukraine to Austria in an effort to escape the dangers of World War II and to secure the safety of her dear friend, Nathan. As a young Jewish boy, Nathan is in grave danger and this powerful story demonstrates what happens when love and deep friendship are at stake.
