The Nazis came into Josef's town and told the Jewish people they aren't allowed to practice Judaism anymore.
WHY ARE THE NAZIS HERE?!?
The Nazis came and took Mr. Landau away when they learned he was still practicing Judaism. They relesed him 6 months later, but told Josef's family they had to get out of Germany quick or they would take Josef's dad again.
Mr. Landau you have contiuned to practice Judaism. Come with us now.
PLEASE DON"T!!! I HAVE A FAMILY!!
Josef and his family get on a boat really quick in hopes of finding their new home far away from the Nazis.....
