Secrets of Survival


Malka Rosenbaum remembers that moment as if it happened yesterday.   A Toronto University student, she had been complaining about the difficulties of being an only child. Her Mother then told her there was once another child who had died in WW2. Malka had a sister and her name was Esther.  Forty-five years later, Malka’s 93 year old Aunt Franiya told her that Esther may have survived. Malka is compelled to find out what happened.

Juergen Ulloth can never forget the moment his life changed forever.  Excited about getting married, he went to the Kassel Municipality in Germany to retrieve his birth certificate for a marriage license. The clerk told Juergen that his family name was not originally Ulloth, it was Raenold, his Mother’s maiden name.  Juergen’s Father, a German WW2 veteran, was not his biological parent.  Who is his Father?  Juergen must find him. The search leads him to America and transforms his identity.
