For years Emmy Macalik lived in a sheltered world of music and dancing, culture and harmony. It seemed to Emmy that nothing could touch that world, or take it away. But then Vienna was swept into a war that changed her way of life as surely as it altered the course of human history. The gentle strains of the waltz were silenced bu the marching beat of soldiers.
Now there was no time for elegance or grace - only for bombings and blackouts, hunger and fear. Emmy saw her world falling apart, and there was nothing she could do to save it.
This is the true story of her fight to survive.
