This is the story of Johannes, and Frau Marks, and the strange girl now known as ‘Helga’.
It is also the story of how they survived the death camps, the vast wilderness faced by European refugees after World War II, and eventually found happiness in Australia.
This moving and compelling book follows on from Heidi’s story in “Hitler’s Daughter” and Georg’s in “Pennies for Hitler”, and shows us that evil must be fought and overcome. But once you’ve won, the hardest and most necessary battle is to understand and forgive.
And to learn how to live and love again
