August, 1944, Auschwitz. The skinny little girl with dark eyes looks nine rather than her real age of fourteen. Flanked on either side by her older cousins, Inka and Carmella, she has survived yet another selection for the gas chambers. Inka maintains that when the SS man passes in front of Guta, an angel’s hand covers his eyes so that he cannot choose her. And so it seems. All the horrors and cruelty, miraculously, do not crush this remarkable child. We are left in awe at her resilient, life-affirming spirit.
