Summary
"Six-year-old Gretl Schmidt is on a train bound for Auschwitz. Polish Resistance fighter Jakob Kowalski is planting a bomb on the tracks to destroy a German troop transport, but Gretl's unscheduled train reaches the bomb first. When Jakob discovers her, the only survivor, guilt and compassion prompt him to take her home. She can't stay with his Catholic family forever, so Jakob sends Gretl to South Africa, where German war orphans are promised bright futures. But the two have formed a bond of love that no circumstances can overcome."--
