About the Book

After her parents had died, Jillian Rothwell discovered a 1930s suitcase in the attic full of her father’s letters telling the story of his dramatic departure and escape from Nazi-occupied Vienna in 1938. With astonishing luck, he made it all the way to the safe haven of New Zealand and eventually he was able to continue his medical career and become a prominent member of the New Zealand medical profession.
