In Refugees on the Run, the cousins meet Lena, a Jewish girl from Lithuania. Lena and her extended family, who are Jews from Poland, are desperate to escape Lithuania before the Nazis invade. But getting the proper travel documents is next to impossible.
Their one hope is Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat working in Lithuania who must decide whether to help the Jews or follow orders from Japan. As tensions mount and the Nazis grow closer, will Patrick and Beth be able to help Lena’s family escape in time?
