A Safe Haven
What makes a young boy lie about his age to fight in a war? It’s when you see someone you love executed before your very eyes. When Dragan first set out to be an apprentice tailor, how was he to know that his life would depend on how good he could be?
As the Nazis begin to unleash their power across Europe, the Yugoslav Army, unable to withstand the German onslaught, is forced to capitulate. With the King in exile, Dragan’s beloved country is torn apart as the communists seek to replace the monarchy. A Safe Haven is a unique story, told from the perspective of young man caught up in two wars. Finding himself in danger, his journey takes him from a small village in Serbia, across Yugoslavia, Italy, Germany and then England. Facing adversity and incredible hardship along the way, Dragan’s journey was one of great courage, strength and resilience. Forging the bonds of friendship along the way. Friendships that would last a lifetime.
