Escape to Virginia follows the true story of two Jewish teenagers growing up in Nazi Germany who end up living on a farm outside of Richmond, Va.

Eva Jacobson Loew and Werner T. Angress and their families made difficult decisions as they faced growing anti-Semitism, exclusion, and evil. Freedoms were taken away and hopes and dreams for their future became uncertain.

The book tells the story of their transition from a life of security, love, and happiness to a lifelong journey of courage, perseverance, and honor.

Read the book and then meet the author, Robert H. Gillette at Congregation Beth El.

This free and open to the public event will include a dessert reception. RSVP to Beth El at 757-625-7821.
