Azrieli's story demonstrates his fierce loyalty to his family and his courage in seeking freedom always ''one step ahead'' of death. Adventures include escaping occupied Poland to Uzbekistan, enlistment in the Anders' Army, reaching Iran, and escaping to Iraq. In Baghdad, with the help of Moshe Dayan and Enzo Sereni, he was concealed on a bus that smuggled weapons into Palestine.
