For many years the brown leather suitcase lay under the house, hidden from the family and full of secrets. When it was finally opened it proved to be filled with letters and documents all in Polish.
Once translated the Siegel family finally knew the fate of their Polish relatives. This is a story of love, loyalty and heroism; of those who died, the ones who tried to save them and the one man who could have made a difference.
Writing this book has been a long and difficult journey. I feel privileged that, of all the millions of anonymous victims of Hitler, I have been able to get to know and cherish this one family. By remembering them I can honour all those who will forever remain anonymous.
