As a six-year-old child on the island of Imbroz, Bread Crumbs life is shattered by terror and religious persecution. In the face of increasing danger, Bread Crumbs father gives his son to the safety of relatives. But before he parts with his child, he leaves him with a dream. They odyssey begins. By age 14, alone in a dangerous world of Turkish aggression, Bread Crumb set sail for Constantinople. Arriving penniless and hungry, he is armed with hope and faith. Inspired by this fathers dream for him, Bread Crumb survives backbreaking labor and conscription into the Turkish Work Battalions, where he endures arctic temperatures at the Russian front. Through ingenuity and will, faith and forgiveness, Bread Crumb escapes half a lifetime of poverty and oppression as his odyssey leads him to America.
