Although she manages to save her parents lives once, she ultimately loses them along with dozens of family members in the Nazi death camps. Homeless, starving, and constantly on the run, Adela faces death often but always succeeds in finding a way out.

Whether in the hellish ghettos of southern Poland, jailed in a Nazi prison for her work in the underground resistance, or at the epicenter of dehumanization-the Auschwitz death camp-Adela never loses her humanity. She creates little pockets of freedom for both herself and others in times when freedom comes at the price of death.After surviving the war, she starts a family and a new life in communist Poland and embraces communism until the wave of anti-Semitism in 1968 forces her to leave the country permanently.

Her husband, Michał, a government official, stays behind. Profoundly disappointed by the results of state communism, Adela settles in Germany, the land of her oppressors, and begins to plot one last heroic maneuver-the rescue of her husband from behind the Iron Curtain.
