Summary"When 17-year-old Leslie Meisels insisted that his mother and two brothers join a transport leaving Debrecen, Hungary, to go who knows where, that decision luckily put them among the roughly 20,000 'exchange Jews' whose lives had been bartered for cash and military equipment in a secret deal with Adolf Eichmann." —Publisher
