Reviewed in the United States on October 10, 2016
The book reads like a novel but it is entirely based on facts. Hans Jonathan, a 7 year old son of a slave, and therefore a slave himself, moves from the Danish Virgin Island of St. Croix to Kopenhagen in Denmark, where he becomes a war hero. For that he gets his freedom from the Danish king but his "owner" wins the case against the King and Hans Jonathan - before getting sent back to St. Croix - flees to Iceland. This is an important book. Anyone concerned with human rights should read it.
