Summary

"Tell me what you remember most about home," Dick asked me one evening. "A lilac tree," I said. "It bloomed every May, around the time of Mama's birthday. The memory is so vivid in mind, I can almost smell the lilacs now." In 1942 Hannelore Wolff's life changed forever. Her father had been arrested and sent to a concentration camp. Six weeks later he was dead, and Hannelore and the rest of her family were deported to the camps and a life of unbearable suffering. Yet despite the horrors she faced in various labour and concentration camps, including Auschwitz, Hannelore met and fell in love with Polish POW, Dick Hillman. After a few months they were seperated, but Dick promised Hannelore that he would find her again, wherever she was. He kept his promise, and when both their names appeared on Oskar Schindler's list, Dick and Hannelore were reunited and married. This is their incredible story of courage, love and hope during one of the most horrific times in history.
