I Am David Summary & Study Guide Description

He is also inspired to pray for the first time in his life. One night, however, he overhears some of the people of the town talking about him and, fearful that they will turn him over to "them" the Nazis who ran the concentration camp David flees.

As he continues making his way north towards Denmark, he encounters more friendly travelers, some of whom comment on his unusual ability with languages which narration reveals he acquired while in the camp , on his watchful eyes, and on his apparent inability to smile.

At one point on his journey through Italy, David saves the life of a beautiful young girl, Maria.

In gratitude, her parents take him into their home, and for a while, he enjoys good food, the opportunity to read, nice clothes, and a comfortable bed. However, after overhearing Maria's parents express their concerns to each other about how strange he seems, David again fears that he will be returned to the Nazis and flees. Plot[ edit ] year-old David has lived in a concentration camp for as long as he can remember.

While the people who run the camp are only referred to as them, later in the book it is stated that they came to power in , the year of the Russian Revolution.

David was a strong, brave and intelligent boy who had been ripped away from his mother and put into a dreadful camp.

His only friend in the camp, Johannes, died some time before from a heart attack, as is revealed in a flashback in Chapter 1. One of the commandants has been keeping an eye on David, making sure he is fed properly and taking his vitamins. This guard sets up the escape, gives him some soap, and leaves a sack outside the camp fence with bread, a bottle of water, and a compass in it.

David must go south to Salonika , find a boat to Italy , then travel north to a free country that has a king. David finds a truck headed for Salonika, and without realizing it, climbs on board.

He eats some of the food inside and when the truck stops, he jumps out. He finds a boat labeled "Italy" and sneaks in.

After hiding for a few days and getting quite drunk accidentally , he is found. Thankfully, the Italian sailor decides to help David escape by lowering him down the side of the ship with a lifebelt on. He floats to land and, after climbing for a little ways, promptly falls asleep.

After having a bath, David finds a cave to spend the day in.And her brother whom he deemed was evil hearted because after he trespassed onto there property he drove him off.

After that night he took care to run at a more even pace and to stop more often, but for shorter periods, to recover his breath. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. So David jumped out and found himself in the middle of a large town, and, being careful to walk in the shadow of the houses -- for there was no call to be foolhardy even if Johannes were with him -- he had no difficulty in finding the harbour where the ships lay. Giving him a name would be like admitting that he knew him; it would place him on an equal footing with the others.

The men sat down a little way off and lit cigarettes, and it gradually dawned upon David that they were not looking for him at all. He asked her if she had ever before come across a little Italian tramp who spoke English with an Oxford accent and was offended when he was offered money.

As long as Johannes had been with him, he had asked questions all the time, but he was only a little boy then and had asked about all sorts of things he had no use for now.

Reading again as an adult and being more aware of the WWII context, it's easy to see that the book presents a rather simplistic view — though still a worthwhile introduction for younger readers to this time period.
