In Germany 1942, Rachel, a ten-year-old Jewish girl is forced to travel in a packed cattle train with her family to a concentration camp in Poland; a death camp under the auspices of Dr Mengele, ‘The Angel of Death.’ She is asked by Dr Mengele to read to a number of twins that he uses in his deatly experimants.
Her mother, Sarah, a nurse, is chosen to assist a surgeon. She eventually escpes and joins the partisans

The first trains operated on 16th October 1941, transporting Jews from central Germany to ghettos in the east, mainly Poland. The trains consisted mainly of freight or cattle cars and were packed, according to SS/Gestapo regulations, with 50, but sometimes up to 150 occupants were crammed inside.
No food or water was provided, while the freight cars were only provided with a bucket latrine. A small barred window provided irregular ventilation, which sometimes resulted in deaths from either suffocation or the exposure to the winter elements.
An average transport journey took four and a half days. Due to cramped conditions, many deportees died underway.
