Summary
Hannah is the last survivor of a group of 146 Jewish children liberated barely alive from the German concentration camp at Dachau in 1945. She was seven years old and had been interned for four brutal years. Hannah never saw her family again after being separated upon arrival at camp. Taken in by German nuns who ran a convent high in the Bavarian Alps, those who recovered went to school for the first time and received homemade wooden shoes for their previously unshod feet. Taught to ski by the nuns, as a teenager Hannah was chosen to train with the German Olympic team, although unidentified as a Jew. She participated in the 1956 games at Cortina, Italy
