Warsaw, 1942. When Peter’s parents are killed, Nazi soldiers take him away to be measured and assessed. Peter is racially valuable: a Volksdeutscher of pure German blood. With his blond hair, blue eyes and well-proportioned head, he looks the perfect Aryan – just like the boy on the Hitler-Jugend poster. Someone important will want to adopt Peter. They do. Professor Kaltenbach is very pleased to welcome such a fine Aryan specimen to his household. People will be envious. But Peter is not quite the specimen they think. He is forming his own ideas about what he is seeing and being told. Peter doesn’t like the Nazis, and so he is going to take a very dangerous risk. The most dangerous risk he could possibly choose to take in Berlin in 1942…
