For her 70th birthday, Yardena Arazi embarks on a journey with her cousin Tamar in the footsteps of their mothers and heroines – Yvette and Fanny Loinger. During the journey they uncover the stories of other Jewish women who all endeavored for one cause – saving hundreds of Jewish children. The story of the Loinger family, to which Yardena's mother was born, is rare and unique – unbeknownst to the Nazis, four members of one family rescued hundreds of Jewish children from death and risked their lives in doing so. The fact that three of them are women makes this story even more astonishing. A story about the fortitude of women in impossible circumstances.
