Heroism did exist during the Holocaust, and this story illustrates that there were some who would risk their own lives to save the lives of others. The fictitious Anna fights two wars--not only the war against the Nazis, but also a personal war to keep her lover, Joseph, from the grasp of the beautiful, mysterious Ilsa. Fleeing a forced labor camp in Nazi Germany, Anna and Joseph become resistance fighters during the latter months of WWII, and Paris describes their attempts to appear to lead a normal life while secretly trying to outwit the enemy. On their trail is barbaric Captain Stoltz, whose infatuation with Anna drives his furious search for the two escapees. Events propel Anna and Joseph toward a surprising, suspenseful conclusion.
