In the 1930s, as evil begins to envelope Europe, Karl Rothstein is born in Austria. As his life unfolds, he watches as Hitler's armies visit his kindergarten, order his family from their home, and arrest his father. During Kristallnacht - the night of broken glass - Karl witnesses events that will later be considered by historians to be a dress rehearsal for the Holocaust. Before World War II is over, Karl will lose his brother and grandparents, and spend years in hiding. This is the true story of one man's pilgrimage to freedom - a journey that began on the day he reported with his family to the train station, where they were to board the train to a concentration camp. Under the watchful eye of a guardian angel, Karl eventually made his way to Israel and the U.S. where he was, at last, free to live his life openly as a Jew.
