In the Fall of 1940, the family of László Nussbaum, a young man from the Romanian town of Turda, moved to the city of Cluj, which had just become part of Hungary along with Northern Transylvania. They were hoping for a better life in a country where they thought they would feel at home. Shortly after, they found themselves in a freight train, which was to carry them directly to Auschwitz. The only survivor of his family, László brings back to life the atmosphere of war-torn Transylvania and explores the meanings of such experiences as survival, hope, and forgiveness.
