Three people meet in a sleepy Buckinghamshire village to share the
stories of their early dramatic lives. Jack is an American on a
sentimental journey after suffering a serious heart attack.
Waddesdon is the village that gave him a home when he escaped as a
twelve year old Jewish boy from Nazi Germany in 1939. Charlie
trained as a gardener at Waddesdon. It gave him his life and his
love, but at twenty-one he began six years in prison camps, on
forced labour and Death Marches. Irmgard was only three in 1945
when she was forced from her home with her mother and three
brothers as the Russians advanced. Homeless and penniless refugees
in their own land, they heard no word from their father captured
behind enemy lines. Each storyteller lived through extraordinary
times. Each had known hunger, poverty, fear, prejudice and
persecution. Sometimes they felt shame and guilt that their stories
did not match the 'official' version, yet these are authentic
memoirs of ordinary men and women caught up in war at an early age.
