Summary Elsa is an outgoing woman who tackles her daily tasks cheerfully. Even when she is arrested for deportation, her unquestioning cooperation and inability to consider a montrously horrific reality demonstrate how millions of people were manipulated to their doom. Equally obedient, the German officers have their orders to follow. The true account of the deportation of over 4,000 Jews to Auschwitz in July of 1944, and how one mother's simple act of quiet defiance evaded deportation to Auschwitz - and certain death.
