September 1, 2019
It is 1939 in Berlin, Ger­many, and twelve-year-old Lil­lian and her Papa are on the run from Nazi sol­diers. Because they are Jew­ish, they are in dan­ger of being arrest­ed and put in prison. Lil­lian’s father is blind and it seems no one is will­ing to help them, until they meet Otto Wei­dt. Mr. Wei­dt runs a fac­to­ry that makes brush­es for the Nazi army, and his secret is that he employs blind Jew­ish work­ers. Lil­lian learns that Otto Wei­dt is deter­mined to keep her, Papa, and all the Jew­ish work­ers safe. But will he be able to?
