- Description'A beautiful blonde Aryan child, ' the officer remarked. Little did he kw that Anna Levi and her friend, Paul Brucks, had been on the run across Nazi-occupied Europe after escaping from a doom-laden march to a concentration camp. They'd jumped trains, lived by their wits and become street musicians in Budapest, before finding a haven near the Swiss border with kindly Mrs Greenberg.
