Suppose you found, to your complete surprise, that your own father was one of those people.That is what happened to Anna in 1933.

One day, her father was unaccountably missing. Then she herself and her brother Max were being rushed by their mother, in alarming secrecy, away from everything they knew – home and schoolmates and well-loved toys – right out of Germany…
