It is the story of a Jewish woman, who survived the death/labor camps, and a Hitler Youth fanatic who both lived in Germany (at one time) during the time of Hitler.
This is a true story, and Helen Waterford and Alfons Heck even toured together doing speaking engagements. They wanted to share their story and show that the worst of enemies (at one time in history) could find peace with each other and share their hope for peace in this world.
Stories like this always make me wonder what I would do to survive and if I would be able to endure and keep hope alive. It's amazing what hate can do, yet we are so willing to give it out, so freely. Even in the concentration camps how they would turn on each other.
I like to think I wouldn't do that, but I have to be honest and wonder if I would, if I were so cold and hungry, and just trying to survive.
It makes me marvel at the ability for the human spirit to endure.
Interesting and will make you think about what you would do,
and how/if you would be able to cope with life and forgive when it was over.
