“If you’re not free, you’re not living”.
– Roy Shenkel
This is the story of WWII POW Roy Shenkel, a B-17 waist gunner, shot down over German-occupied Yugoslavia in 1944. Held for more than a year under the brutality of Nazi forces, this is Roy’s experience of captivity, but more importantly the life that followed, and the lessons learned. The most important lesson? Where freedom is truly found.
