Shrouded in mystery for more than six decades, this harrowing narrative unfolds in the grip of the Shoah, tracing the survival of two Brothers, Itzik Weinberg and Avner Kerem. When they weren’t yet four years old, three women came their rescue: first, their mother in the Kracow Ghetto; then their Aunt in Budapest; overrun by Nazis; and, after both women had perished, a beautiful stranger who shielded the boys in the shadow of death in Bergen Belsen and after their liberation in the serenity of Montreux, Switzerland. All this remained hidden. The boys who ultimately found their way to Israel grew up unsure they were even related, although their surviving family always treated them as brothers, speaking cryptically about their “three mothers”. Now in their 70s Avner takes Itzik on a journey in search of their true identity piecing together the story of their survival and the love that rescued them from certain death.
