"A young girl, looking back from a train, appears for seven seconds on a film of a transport bound for Auschwitz. Who was the girl? Did she survive? Aad Wagenaar, a leading Dutch journalist, felt haunted by this image and decided to discover her identity. His two year search led to the Westerbork transit camp in Holland, war archives in Scheveningen and Amsterdam, meetings with Jewish survivors and, finally, to the Dutch Sinti (Gypsy) community. The common assumption that the child was Jewish proved to be wrong. She was a Sinti girl called Settela, born beneath a caravan. She was murdered in Auschwitz at nine years old. This book is the account of Aad Wagenaar's quest." Translated by Janna Eliot, with an afterword by Ian Hancock. Five Leaves, 2005.
