Summary"In the spring of 1942, Hannelore Wolff was living with her girlfriends at school in Berlin when she received shocking news: Her mother and brothers were about to be deported by the Gestapo. In a life-changing moment, Hannelore decided to leave school and join her family. Over the next few years, Hannelore endured the horrors of eight labor and concentration camps. Despite being surrounded by almost unbearable suffering, Hannelore fell in love with a young Polish POW named Dick Hillman. Together, the young couple found hope when they were placed on Schindler's list. But the promise of safety was not sealed—just a few weeks later, Hannelore found herself at the gates of Auschwitz." —Back cover
