On September 6, 1970, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLEP) hijacked four airliners bound from Europe for New York. One was taken to Cairo and blown up only seconds after its passengers escaped. Two others were hijacked to the desert floor northeast of Amman, Jordan, where a three-week drama began. Seventeen-year-old David Raab was on the TWA flight with his mother and siblings but was separated from them and taken to a refugee camp and then an apartment in Amman where he was held hostage through a civil war. This is the breathtaking story of his capture and survival, told here for the first time.
