August 1939. On her summer break from her studies at the Royal
Academy of Music, the exquisitely talented young South African
pianist, Olda Mehr, and her parents, leave London to visit
relatives in Eastern Europe. A dreamy holiday descends into
nightmare when Germany invades Poland, and the Mehrs find
themselves, as Jews, caught up in Hitler's Holocaust. For Olda,
Gestapo torture and the threat of the gas chamber are relieved by
letters from her boyfriend, the artist-musician-doctor, Bennie
Hermer, now a captain in the South African army fighting in North
Africa. After the Allied disaster at Tobruk, Ben is imprisoned in
the dusty, dysentery-ridden POW camp at Benghazi.
