Summary
As WWII draws to an end thousands of refugees look to escape East Prussia. Operation Hannibal is in full effect and the luxury ship Wilhelm Gustloff has been conscripted into military service with promises of freedom. Among the refugees are Florian, Emilia, and Joana. They are all strangers and they all have secrets, but working together they may survive.
Critique
Ruta Septys delivers another devastating work of historical fiction. Powerful and heartbreaking, she once again brings light to lesser known atrocities of WWII.
