Summary
"Victoria Kowelska is tortured in a concentration camp during the final days of World War II, and her family in Poland is slaughtered. Her best friend, Karin, who is ill, hopes to recover and make it to San Francisco, where a wealthy aunt is taking care of her son. But when Karin dies and the camp is liberated, Victoria exchanges identity papers with the dead woman, thereby gaining a new identity and family. After five years in relocation camps, Victoria finally gets to America, only to learn that Karin's aunt has recently died, and her nephew is in charge of the estate and Karin's son."--Booklet
