Follows the daring 1943 rescue attempt by resistance fighter Youra Livchitz and a pair of new recruits to rescue Jewish captives from a transport train destined for Auschwitz, an effort that resulted in the safe escape of more than 225 prisoners and the deaths of the three rescuers.

Blackwell North Amer
The spring of 1943 was a desperate season for the Jews of Brussels. The resistance movement had successfully bombed the SS headquarters that January, but anti-Jewish laws were tightening, and a camp had been set up in the nearby town of Mechelen (dubbed the "ante-chamber of death") to transport Belgian Jews to Auschwitz. The time had come for action.
