The true tale of the wartime escape that saved Curious George

curious-george-book-coverHave you ever wondered about the story behind the story of that curious little monkey named George? Did you know that he was a World War II refugee and came to the United States with a different name? The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida invites you to learn about George’s creators, H.A. and Margret Rey, from Louise Borden, the author of The Journey That Saved Curious George.

Come and discover how the Reys traveled through five countries over five months, arriving in the United States in the fall of 1940. The first Curious George book was published in 1941 and the adventures of this curious monkey have lasted for 75 years.
