She escaped Nazi persecution as a child, and then grew to become an inspirational leader
1935. Hitler’s Nazi’s are firmly in control in Germany, and the persecution of the Jews has begun in earnest. In this desperate time of uncertainty, an unmarried Jewish woman gives birth to a daughter, whom she names Ruth.
But as the clouds of war gather, and it seems that Europe will once more be engulfed in conflict, Ruth’s mother makes the heart-wrenching decision to send her to safety on one of the ‘Kindertransport’ trains.
Arriving in England, Ruth is housed with a priest who raises her in the Christian faith, but also recognises her Jewish ancestry and so employs help to also raise her according to Jewish traditions.
It soon becomes apparent that Ruth is a very special child and can build bridges between people of different backgrounds, even at an early age.
From Nazi Germany to England and then to Australia, Ruth overcomes religious and ethnic intolerance and becomes an engineer on the Snowy Mountain Hydroelectric Project, defying all the odds.
It is a story of overcoming the brutality of life, of chasing your dreams and of bringing people together. But above all, it is a story of hope.
