Having overrun Czechoslovakia, the iron baton of Hitler’s Third Reich is poised to orchestrate a requiem for Warsaw. Foreshadowing an international nightmare the world will never forget, millions are imperiled, destined to be caught and crushed the the Fuhrer’s grasp.
Lori Ibsen and Jacob Kalner, along with Jamie, Mark and Alfie, take refuge in Danzig, hoping they will be safe there while awaiting a ship to England. Peter Wallich escapes to Warsaw, desperately seeking a place among the Jews in Muranow Square. Lucy Strasburg, about to deliver her “SS child,” stays behind in Danzig, hoping to evade the clutches of Wolf von Fritschauer. But there is no safe place in pre-war Europe. Hitler’s bombers hover over Danzig and Warsaw, a dark shadow of terror of death.
