About this book
A unique account of how 17-year old Zdenka Fantlova survived the horrors of the Nazi death camps. In the last chaotic days of the war, she nearly died of starvation, but a British army officer whose name she never learned saved her. The book is dedicated to him, and there is an international hunt in place to discover his identity.
A peaceful childhood in pre-war Czechoslovakia seemed on course for a happy ending with her soul-mate Arno: but Hitler and war intervened. Arno perished in the Holocaust, but Zdenka carried his ring from Terezin to Auschwitz to Kurzbach, on a 300-mile death march to Gross Rosen and finally to Belsen.
