The memoirs of Adam Starkopf, a survivor of the Holocaust. This is the story about parents who are motivated chiefly by the tremendous desire to save their child. Strokes of luck play their part; the so-called "Aryan" features of this very Jewish couple also play a part. The journey takes the Starkopfs from Warsaw to the death camp of Treblinka. They survive on false papers, on false identities, witnesses to the tragedy of millions.
