Waterstones Says

A harrowing but engrossing true story of unimaginable courage and resilience ideal for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Iperen’s biography traces the lives of two siblings sent to the notorious death camp after their resistance efforts in The Netherlands are betrayed.

WINNER of the Opzij Literature Prize 2019

Perfect for readers of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, The Choice and The Librarian of Auschwitz - this is the international bestselling and life-affirming true story of female bravery and surviving the horrors of Auschwitz.

They knew their survival depended on each other.

They had to live for each other.

It is 1940 and the Final Solution is about to begin. The Nazis have occupied The Netherlands but resistance is growing and two Jewish sisters - Janny and Lien Brilleslijper - are risking their lives to save those being hunted, through their clandestine safehouse 'The High Nest'. It becomes one of the most important safehouses in the country but when the house and its occupants are betrayed the most terrifying time of the sisters' lives begins. This is the beginning of the end.

With German defeat in sight, the Brilleslijper family are put on the last train to Auschwitz, along with Anne Frank and her family. What comes next challenges the sisters beyond human imagination as they are stripped of everything but their courage, resilience and love for each other.
