'Everyone thinks, tomorrow it will be my turn. Daily, hourly, death is before our eyes . . .'

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.
