About this title


SS Obersturmfuhrer Paul Meissner arrives in Auschwitz wounded and fit only for administrative duty. His most pressing task is to improve camp morale, so he establishes a chess club for enlisted men. Soon Meissner learns that chess is also played among the prisoners, and there are rumors of an unbeatable Jew known as ''the Watchmaker.'' Meissner finds Emil Clement, the Watchmaker, and a curious relationship arises between them. Twenty years later, the two meet again in Amsterdam. Emil wants nothing to do with the ex-Nazi officer, but Meissner is persistent. As both men search for a modicum of peace, they recall a gripping tale of survival and trust.
