At 87, Cornelia, once Germany’s top official on immigration, recounts the remarkable history of her parents Donata and Eberhard Helmrich who together saved countless Jewish lives in the Holocaust. As we push deeper into the 21st century, humanity faces an inflection point; the last survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and the Second World War leave us, taking with them the first-hand memories of one of humanity’s darkest chapters. It is incumbent upon us to safeguard their histories and lessons learned at such tremendous expense.
