Of their survival, not only of the Holocaust but the Blitz that raged alongside it. Of their uncertain journeys, their unknown destinations, as children, as orphans. Of the unlikely fact that both are alive today to tell the tale. And of the love these sisters had, and still have, for one another. Where to begin?
