The inspiring true story of a father and son’s fight to stay together and survive the Holocaust, for anyone captivated by The Cut Out Girl and The Tattooist of Auschwitz ‘A powerful and often uncomfortable true story that deserves to be read and remembered. It beautifully captures the strength of the bond between a father and son’ Heather Morris, author of New York Times no. 1 bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz _______Even in darkness, love brings hope.

Gustav and Fritz Kleinmann are father and son in an ordinary Austrian Jewish family when the Nazis come for them. Sent to Buchenwald concentration camp in 1939 they survive three years of murderous brutality. Then Gustav is ordered to Auschwitz.

Fritz, desperate not to lose his beloved father, insists he must go too. And though he is told it means certain death, he won’t back down. So it is that father and son together board a train bound for the most hellish place on Earth .

. . This is the astonishing true story of love and impossible survival.
