‘For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved three things: the long summer holidays, my brother Walther and Adolf Hitler.’

Margot Baumann has left school to take up her sister’s job in the mailroom of a large prison. But this is Germany in 1944, and the prison is Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin.

Margot is shielded from the camp’s brutality as she has no contact with prisoners. But she does handle their mail and, when given a cigarette lighter and told to burn the prisoners’ letters, she is horrified by the callous act she must carry out with her own hands. So Margot steals a few letters, intending to send them in secret, only to find herself drawn to their heart-rending words of hope, of despair, and of love.

‘For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved three things: the long summer holidays, my brother Walther and Adolf Hitler.’

Margot Baumann has left school to take up her sister’s job in the mailroom of a large prison. But this is Germany in 1944, and the prison is Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin.

Margot is shielded from the camp’s brutality as she has no contact with prisoners. But she does handle their mail and, when given a cigarette lighter and told to burn the prisoners’ letters, she is horrified by the callous act she must carry out with her own hands. So Margot steals a few letters, intending to send them in secret, only to find herself drawn to their heart-rending words of hope, of despair, and of love.

This is how Margot comes to know Dieter Kleinschmidt – through the beauty and the passion of his letters to a girlfriend.

And since this girlfriend is also named Margot, it is like reading love letters written for her.

From award-winning author James Moloney comes an extraordinary story about love, loss and profound courage.
