Summary A true story of a Jewish Austrian hat designer who rescued herself and the businessman she loved during the 1938 Nazi invasion, seeking safety amid the horrors of World War II Europe.
In 1938 Kanter was a hat designer for the best-dressed women in Vienna. She frequented the most elegant caf├ęs. She had suitors. She flew to Paris to see the latest fashions. And she fell deeply in love with Walter Ehrlich, a charming and romantic businessman. But as Hitler's tanks rolled into Austria, the world this young Jewish couple knew collapsed, leaving them desperate to escape.
